Man killed, swallowed whole by 23-foot python
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.
The 25-year-old victim who was only identified as Akbar went to the island of Sulawesi to work on his palm oil crops Sunday morning.
Akbar's wife, Munu, was away at the time and only found out when pictures and video emerged in the news, Tribun Timur said. Although humans are rarely killed by pythons suspicions fell on the massive snake after being spotted, unmoving in a ditch near to where Akbar would have been.
The breed of snake, which regularly tops 20 feet, is commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines.

"Once we captured the snake, the boots worn by Akbar were clearly visible in the snake's belly".
Inside, they found the lifeless body of the missing father of two. In 2005 a Burmese python tried to swallow an alligator whole - it burst in the process and both died, their bodies later being found by Florida rangers. In 2008, employees at a Venezuelan zoo found a 10-foot Burmese Python attempting to swallow a young zookeeper's corpse after it had strangled him to the death, the Telegraph reported.
Reticulated pythons are one of the most commonly human-hunted snakes, due to their large size, which guarantees a large quantity of snakeskin that can be sold.
While some have occurred by wild Southeast Asian pythons, others have been made by captive snakes in the US. The animal's stomach has very strong acids in it that slowly digest its food, which means when it has swallowed a large item of prey, it must rest for several days.
