Missing Indonesian woman eaten alive by 30-foot python

Missing Indonesian woman eaten alive by 30-foot python

A woman who went missing for hours ended up being swallowed whole by a giant python in Indonesia.

The incident marked the second python killing in the same province in a month.

A 36-year-old woman named Siriati went missing after she left her house on Tuesday, the 2nd of July, to buy medicine for her sick child.

Her 30-year-old husband Adiansa found her slippers and pants about 500 meters away from their home in Siteba village, South Sulawesi province.

The husband became suspicious after he spotted a giant snake nearby with a very large belly.

Adiansa sought help from other villagers to catch the 30-foot python and cut its belly where they found his wife’s body inside.

Siriati became the sixth person to be devoured by a python in Indonesia since 2017.

A gruesome scene took place in the same province last month when 45-year-old Farida was found inside the belly of a 16-foot python.

The entire village, including her husband, searched for the missing woman for days until they decided to cut open the stomach of a suspicious-looking python where Farida was found fully clothed inside the snake.

Reticulated are widespread in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia. They are known to eat monkeys, pigs, and other mammals and kill their prey by squeezing them to death before swallowing it whole.
