Horrifying Moment Man Cut Out Of 23 Foot Pythons Stomach 173 pythonfb

Villagers from an island in west Sulawesi, Indonesia were shocked when they discovered the dead body of a missing man inside a stomach of a seven-meter python after cutting the snake open.

Akbar departs from his home at around 7 a.m, heading for its oil palm plantations [bringing] harvesting equipment", Salubiro village secretary Junaidi told TribunSulbar.com on Tuesday. Anxious relatives launched a search for him after he failed to return home from a trip to the family's plantation.

"The victim was probably swallowed on Sunday because his body was already swollen when we found him", he added.

Residents of the village cut the snake open with a big knife and found Akbar's body inside.

Junaedi told the Jakarta Post that villagers "heard cries from the palm grove the night before Akbar was found".

The gruesome discovery was documented in a six-minute video, showing graphic imagery of the man's legs and torso being revealed as the python's stomach was sliced by horrified locals. But in the process of the python attempting to swallow Akbar, it then choked as well.

A farmer who went missing on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi was found inside the belly of a python on Wednesday.

Although pythons are powerful animals, attacks on people are extremely rare, the National Geographic states.

Among the world's largest reptiles, reticulated pythons regularly grow to lengths of 20 feet or more. After suffocating their prey by strangling them, they swallow their victim whole.

Not necessarily understood was whether the python had eaten other humans and the degree of previous incidents of snakes in the region feeding off humans?
