A FATE WORSE THAN DEATH!
In just a little over a year this is the second time an Indonesian villager has been swallowed whole by a python.
It all happened when Wa Tiba, 54, left her home on Muna island to visit her cornfield Thursday night, according to the Jakarta Post.
The field was about a half mile from her house, and is peppered with caves and surrounded by a lush torpical forest – the perfect habitat for reticulated pythons –the longest snakes in the world.
Pythons usually feed on small mammals and Herpetologists (people who study snakes say attacks on humans are supposed to be as rare as winning the lottery and being struck by lightning at the same time, as Amy B Wang wrote in a Washington Post report.
Well, that leaves for two very unlucky people in Indonesia since a little over a year before this last killing a man's body was extracted from a 23-foot-long python.
When Tiba failed to return later that night her sister went looking for he. She found she found only Tiba's footprints, her flashlight, her machete and slippers.
