A woman in Indonesia was swallowed whole by a python as she checked on her cornfields last week. According to The Washington Post, citing the Jakarta Post, the woman's name was Wa Tiba and lived on Muna Island off the coast of Sulawesi. She left her home Thursday night to visit her cornfield about a half mile from her home.

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. On Friday, 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.

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.

Here's a link to a video showing the villagers cutting open the snake's belly to remove her corpse.

I've seen a few videos like that over the years of bodies being removed from pythons. Pretty wild stuff.

BUT...real as it is, the Film is from 2018 according to the caption.

I never made it to Sulawesi, but I've spent close to three months traveling Indonesia and I enjoyed just about everywhere I went, except for the food poisoning I got in Yogyakarta from a bad plate of gado gado.

How the fuck does this happen? She had a machete. The snake bites her by surprise, but how long does it take for it to coil around her? At some point shouldn't she chop it with the machete while it's coiling and constricting?

Frozen with fear could play a factor too, and I have no idea if those bites are venomous to any degree. Plus she was an old lady, no?

The bite isn't venomous. Still, how long does it take for it to wrap around you?  I need to watch a video & see.
