Local sources state that a woman who worked on an Indonesian rubber plantation was discovered dead within the stomach of a 7-meter python.
On Sunday morning, Jahrah, a 54-year-old woman, left for work on a plantation in the Jambi region of Sumatra. When she did not come home that evening, her husband filed a missing person’s report.
Her husband located her shoes, headscarf, jacket, and the instruments she uses at work while looking for her on Sunday night, authorities said local media. He then asked for assistance. A python was seen nearby early the next morning.
“We discovered a python 7 meters long when the security team and locals searched the area around the rubber plantation. This snake is thought to have preyed on the victim. The victim’s body was discovered inside the snake’s stomach when we grabbed him, according to the local police head, AKP S. Harefa, who spoke to the Detik news website.
Pythons typically devour smaller animals, eating their prey whole, and kill through constriction. Humans being devoured are a rare occurrence.
On the island of Muna, off Sulawesi, a woman was discovered in 2018 after being sucked by a huge python. She had vanished from her garden, which was located at the bottom of a rocky cliff where snakes were known to reside in cavernous dwellings.
In the town of Salubiro on the island of Sulawesi, a farmer was killed and ingested by a gigantic python a year ago.
Snake bites affect a far bigger number of people. The World Health Organization estimates that between 1.8 and 2.7 million snake bite incidents per year result in poisoning. In rural areas with higher levels of poverty, children and agricultural laborers are especially at danger.
