    JAKARTA, Indonesia — A 25-year-old Indonesian man has been swallowed whole by a python on the island of Sulawesi, villagers and news reports said.

    A six-minute video on the website of the Tribun Timur publication shows villagers slicing open the python’s carcass to reveal the legs and torso of the dead victim, named Akbar.

    Junaedi, the secretary of Salubiro village in West Sulawesi province, told The Associated Press that villagers began searching for Akbar on Monday night after realizing he hadn’t returned from working on his palm oil crops the previous day.

    Junaedi said Wednesday that the search party found scattered palm oil fruit, a picking tool and a boot, and then spotted the engorged 7-meter (23-foot) -long reticulated python.

    “When its stomach was cut, we first saw his boot and legs near the neck,” he said. “It seems he was attacked from behind because we found a wound on his back.”

    Reticulated pythons grab onto their prey with dozens of sharp curved teeth and then squeeze it to death before swallowing it whole. They are widespread in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia.

    Reports of humans being killed by pythons are extremely rare. In the wild they are known to eat monkeys, pigs and other mammals.

    Junaedi said Akbar’s absence wasn’t noticed until Monday because his wife was visiting her parents in another province. The alarm was raised when his uncle called on him and found his house locked.

    Like many Indonesians, Junaedi uses one name, as did Akbar.

    The story caught my eye because my wife found a Water Moccasin snake skin near our kayak/canoe ramp the other day that was 3 and a half feet long or so.

    The good news is all she found was the skin; the bad news is that when a snake sheds it's skin it is because it is growing.

    What an awful way to die, literally having the life squeezed out of you then being swallowed in one sitting.

    It is an Associated Press story and I doubt it would be fake news.

    Had it been on joetheclownnews.com I would think it was fake though.

    Dont worry who want to visit indonesia. Its happen at sulawesi jungle. Here in indonesian jungle kalimantan(borneo) especially is more n less like amazon. They re many awsome creature.
    Such as huge snake, crocs, and a hobbit lives here too.

    Here's just yesterday captured video of running hobbit real one. Captured when we have a motocross touring. He is so small and realy fast carying a wood, maybe for setup fire in their base.



    You can slow the frame and will ser clearly..

    But its safe if you want to visit the cities. Visit indonesia.... cheers

    Let me say there's a great antidote for this snake it's called a 12 gauge.

    You sit by the water having a beer and petting your 12 gauge. When you see this piece of shit snake show its eyes in front of you, you take just one of those triple sized slug cartriges, you pump it in and you aim right between the eyes.

    What's left of the snake can be supper. Taste great when they're young. Older snakes have this stingy taste.
