Man Swallowed by 23 Foot Python

Tragic and terrifying.
By Alex Firer

  • Nature is terrifying. And it’s terrible when animals’ interactions with humans is tragic. Such was the case in Indonesia when an Indonesian farmer was swallowed whole by a twenty three foot python. The farmer’s friends came looking for him, found the python and— fearing the worst — cut the python open and found the man inside. It’s an awful and horrifying story. The video of the incident is hard to watch, and can be found online, and, as the video above quotes — humans and animals need space from each other, and the BBC reports, Pythons rarely swallow humans. All in all, a deeply upsetting situation.
