According to the AP, a man on Indonesia's West Sulawesi who went missing several days ago was found yesterday -- inside the body of a giant snake.

The man, Akbar Salubiro, appears to have been eaten by the snake during the palm oil harvest on the island.

There were screams from the area on the night Salubiro went missing, but nobody found him until yesterday, when a snake with a giant bulge in the shape of a body, with boot-shaped protrusions, was seen on the island.

The local people had to catch the snake and cut it open, to find this gruesome picture inside:

Sadly, you can identify the legs and boots of Salubiro inside the body. Pythons like this swallow the entire body whole, although it's not often that they eat adult humans.

Here are more pictures of the python:

The UK's Metro newspaper posted a video of the villagers recovering the body from the python's stomach. You can see it here:

Here is a similar video from an Indonesian newspaper, The Jakarta Post:

The Jakarta Post interviewed a villager who said: "He was found in the location of the garden...Initially Akbar set out from his home to go to harvest palm. After not returning to his home, people looked for him."

Terrifyingly, these snakes are relatively common in the region.
