The family of a 25-year-old man was worried when he failed to return home that night. Father of two, Akbar Salubiro had gone to harvest palm oil on this family’s plantation on the island of Sulawesi. People said they had heard cries from the palm grove but no one thought anything serious until Akbar never showed up at his home that night. A search party found scattered fruit near the families plantation and then they saw the 23-foot-bloated python.
Villagers opened up the snakes stomach and found Akbar’s entire body inside the snake’s belly! The village secretary said that Akbar was probably attacked from behind since he had a wound on his back. Pythons generally attack and eat boards and wild dogs, attacking the animals with their fangs before suffocating the prey and swallowing it whole, they very seldom attack humans.
