A woman, Wa Tuba, in central Indonesia, was swallowed whole by a 23-foot-long python as she checked on her cornfields last week.
The 54-year-old went missing on Muna island in Southeast Sulawesi province on Thursday evening, according to the village chief, Faris.
It was reported that 100 villagers from Persiapan Lawela searched the area and found a 23 foot-long snake with a very swollen belly. The villagers killed the snake, cut it open, and found Wa inside intact.
She probably didn’t die inside the snake: A reticulated python secures its prey with a bite, then wraps its body around the victim, squeezing down until the victim cannot breathe, before consuming, according to the Associated Press.
Reticulated pythons are common in the area, but it was actually wild boars that Wa had been worried about initially because they’d be destroying her crops, according to the Jakarta Post’s report.
When Wa didn’t return, her sister went out to find her and found Wa’s footprints, flashlight, slippers, and machete.
Pythons are the longest snake in the world and usually only eat smaller mammals.
However, a similar incident happened last year to a farmer from the nearby village of Salubiro on Sulawesi Island, according to The Washington Post.
