Another woman swallowed whole by a python in Indonesia

A woman was found dead inside the belly of a snake after it swallowed her whole in central Indonesia last week, police said, the second python killing in the province in a month.

Siriati, 36, had gone missing after she left her house Tuesday morning to buy medicine for her sick child, police said Wednesday, prompting relatives to launch a search.

Her husband Adiansa, 30, found her slippers and pants on the ground about 500 meters from their house in Siteba village, South Sulawesi province.

"Shortly after that, he spotted a snake, about 10 meters from the path. The snake was still alive," local police chief Idul, who like many Indonesians has one name, told AFP.

Village secretary Iyang told AFP that Adiansa became suspicious after he noticed the python's "very large" belly. He called the villagers to help cut open its stomach, where they found her body.

The fatal attack comes about a month after a woman was found dead inside the belly of a reticulated python in another district of South Sulawesi. Graphic video published by TMZ appeared to show the snake being cut open in a wooded area while more footage posted by the Daily Mail appeared to show the woman's body being carried in a blanket past distressed villagers.

here's the thing. This is not something that happens real sudden. When a python grabs it's prey, it takes a very long time for it to swallow it. First it has to crush it, right? So was she dead before she was swallowed ? Or close to dead. I don't get why no one heard her cry out. Because she had to be screaming. They need to carry machetes so they can hack those bastards up.

If those women weren't so damned delicious, they wouldn't get eaten.

Since we are on the subject of pythons- Charles Bronson- I bet he had a python between his legs.

He was not conventionally attractive but I think he was very hot ca. 1974.

Why did she take her slippers and pants off?

by Anonymousreply 7July 9, 2024 1:46 PM

Do you think she was trying to run away and fell so that the python could eat her? It couldn't happen while she was standing unless he came down from a tree and ate her head-first.

R10, she was Googling "what do to when a python starts to eat you."

by Anonymousreply 11July 9, 2024 2:21 PM

She had time to remove her panties and slippers?

Yeah, R4, the person is dead before ingested. It's not like dying in the Sarlacc pit.

Not worried.

Wonder if all snakes swallow, or some just spit.

by Anonymousreply 15July 9, 2024 3:38 PM

R4 when a python squeezes its prey, they are unable to breathe or scream. They get crushed to death and suffocate.

My worst nightmare. And it can happen to anyone at any time, is the scariest part.

It can?

I think the lady is supposed to swallow the python.

Huh r17? Pythons are native to tropical regions. In the US there is only a real population of them in Florida.

Most people posting on this board have zero chance of running into a Python.

Gosh, if it could consume a 36-year old adult without anybody realizing until it was too late, imagine a child.

Just imagine.

She was missing her slippers and pants? is this like the Florida 'alligator ate the evidence of rape and murder' tales?

by Anonymousreply 23July 9, 2024 4:48 PM

Was she raped and killed and then the perpetrator placed her somewhere where a python might find her?

I wonder how fast a python strikes? I would think it would start winding around one’s ankles first. At that point if she had a knife she could cut it and it’d probably let go. Or does come above from a tree and start at the neck. If she had a knife she could still stab it.

Do they not carry protection while walking through the jungle?

So many questions…

Indonesia is prone to some of the most frightful ways to go: constant tsunamis! Crocodiles! Volcanoes! Human-eating pythons.

She was 36...her husband is 30. You go, guuurl!
