The residents of a village in Indonesia were thrown into shock after the body of a farmer was discovered inside the belly of a giant python.
According to Hindustan Times, the body of the 25-year-old man identified as Akbar was found when local people cut open the 23-foot python after it was found bloated and slithering awkwardly in the village of Salubiro, on the eastern island of Sulawesi on Monday, March 27, 2017.
“We were immediately suspicious that the snake had swallowed Akbar because around the site, we found palm fruit, his harvesting tool, and a boot,” a senior village official, Junaidi, told reporters.
Worried by the absence of Akbar after he had gone to his plantation on Sunday, his relatives launched a search for him to no avail.
Junaidi said the snake had swallowed the farmer whole, adding that it was the only such fatality recorded in the region.
The breed of snake, which regularly tops 20 feet, is commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines.
