Missing Grandma Eaten By 22 Foot Python

Large Python

Two days after going missing on a rubber plantation near her home in Jambi, a 54-year-old Indonesian grandmother was found in a 22-foot python’s stomach.

ViralPress reports that family members of Jahrah called emergency services on Friday evening and searched nearby wooded areas.

During a search on Sunday morning, a large bulge was found in the stomach of a reticulated python.

Ato, the head of the nearby village where the woman lived, explained that the snake was killed and its stomach dissected. Everyone was astonished to discover the woman was inside the snake’s stomach.

A video shows concerned members of the search party slicing into the massive reptile’s stomach in an effort to retrieve the woman’s remains.

It had been nearly 48 hours since the woman disappeared. There was no witness to her being consumed by the snake.

A report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature claims that reticulated pythons are the world’s largest snakes, growing up to 28 feet long and weighing up to 320 pounds.
