Missing Indonesian Man’s Body Found Inside Massive Python
A missing man’s body was recovered from a massive python in Indonesia this week

The body of a missing Indonesian man has been recovered inside of a 23-foot-long python, after the victim was killed and swallowed whole.

Extremely disturbing video shot on the island of Sulawesi on Wednesday shows villagers slicing open the reptile’s carcass to reveal the 25-year-old man named Akbar, The Associated Press reported.

Junaedi, the secretary of Salubiro village, told the AP that the discovery capped a near two-day search for the man after he vanished while working on palm oil crops on Sunday. A search party went out on Monday night when he failed to return.

How did an Indonesian python eat a man?
Indonesian police say a farmer in Indonesia has been eaten by a python, which was later cut open to retrieve the man's body

The 25-year-old was seemingly attacked and swallowed at a palm oil plantation near his village in West Sulawesi.

But the extraordinary case has prompted a number of questions. How could it do it?

Reticulated pythons of this size - it was reported to be 7m (23ft)-long - are very powerful. They wrap themselves around their prey and crush it, killing it by suffocation or cardiac arrest.

Indonesian Villagers Cut Open 7-Meter Python to Find Missing Man Swallowed Whole [Warning, Graphic Content]
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

According to Daily Mail, 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro, a palm oil farmer in Indonesia, went missing on Sunday. Akbar went out to harvest some palm, but when he did not return, people started to look for him.

During their search, Akbar's friend found a giant python in his back garden. Afraid that Akbar has been swallowed by the snake, the villagers sliced the python's belly using an 18-inch hunting knife.

Upon slicing, the villagers got the shock of a lifetime when they saw Akbar's lifeless body -- still whole -- curled up inside the seven-meter python's stomach.

How This 23-Foot Python Swallowed a Man Whole
WATCH: MISSING MAN FOUND DEAD INSIDE PYTHON Warning: This video includes graphic imagery.

At first the video is blurry and difficult to make out. A bunch of men standing around a python begin slicing its belly down the middle. It soon becomes apparent that something of note is inside the giant snake, but it's not immediately clear what has drawn so much attention.

Then you see it: An entire grown man, swallowed whole, lies dead inside the python.

According to local news reports, the body found inside the 23-foot-long snake turned out to be 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro, a harvester who worked on a palm oil plantation on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. He was reported missing on March 26.

Here's How a Python Can Swallow a Man Whole

How is it possible for a man to end up in the belly of a snake? That's the question many were asking after the body of 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro was found intact inside a 23-foot reticulated python Sunday in Indonesia. (A highly graphic video shows the body's recovery.)

Here's a look at the science: First comes death. Though python attacks on humans are extremely rare, it's not difficult for a reticulated python, the world's longest snake, to kill a man. Pythons wrap themselves around their victims, crushing them. Constricting snakes like pythons don't actually suffocate their victims but kill by cutting off blood flow, which is a quicker death, reports National Geographic. "The heart literally doesn't have enough strength to push against the pressure," vertebrate ecologist Scott Boback tells the magazine.

But the BBC explains experts previously thought doing anything more than killing a man might be too difficult. Rather than chew, the snakes' flexible jaw ligaments allow them to swallow prey whole. But when it comes to humans, "the restricting factor is ... shoulder blades because they are not collapsible," says one expert. Indeed, the BBC points out size was a problem in a slightly different case, in 2005, when a Burmese python tried to ingest an alligator; the snake burst. The BBC notes stories of man-eating pythons aren't new, but the tales typically come from remote areas short on a witness as trustworthy as the one present in this case—a cell phone. A local agricultural lecturer shares his theory with the Jakarta Post: that the attack was likely a result of deforestation due to palm-oil harvesting, which imperils the snakes' "natural food sources."

Missing farmer found inside giant python's belly in Indonesia (Video)
Residents of a village in Indonesia were thrown into shock when a missing farmer was discovered inside the belly of a giant python after the swollen snake was caught near close to the place where the man had vanished while harvesting his crops

According to Hindustan Times, the body of the 25-year-old man identified as Akbar was found when local people cut open the 23-foot python after it was found bloated and slithering awkwardly in the village of Salubiro, on the eastern island of Sulawesi on Monday, March 27, 2017.

“We were immediately suspicious that the snake had swallowed Akbar because around the site, we found palm fruit, his harvesting tool, and a boot,” a senior village official, Junaidi, told reporters.

Worried by the absence of Akbar after he had gone to his plantation on Sunday, his relatives launched a search for him to no avail.

The swelled up body of the serpent immediately raised fears that the man has been swallowed up as whole.

How do snakes eat super-sized prey – like antelopes, hyenas or humans?

The body of a 25-year-old Indonesian man was discovered inside a 23ft reticulated python on the island of Sulawesi this week, in a rare incidence of a snake attacking humans.

Reticulated pythons are the world's longest snakes, but normally eat small to medium-sized mammals by constricting their prey before swallowing it whole. Pythons are nonvenomous and aren't usually considered dangerous to humans, making this recent case extremely unusual.

Larger pythons have been known to occasionally eat large prey when it becomes available, as seen when a Dutch tourist stumbled across an enormous African rock python consuming a hyena in the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya.
