When she didn't return by Friday morning, her sister went to look for her, but found only her footprints, flashlight, machete and slippers. In yet another horrific incident reported from a village in the Southeast Asian nation, a woman was killed and swallowed whole by a reticulated python, considered biggest and strongest in the world.

She probably didn't die inside the snake: A reticulated python secures its prey with a bite, then wraps its body around the victim, squeezing down until the victim can not breathe, before consuming, according to The Associated Press.

The Chief of local police, Agus Ramos said, "The villagers who were suspicious brought the python back to the village and cut it open".

After killing the snake, the villagers cut it open to discover Tiba's body.

Her head was towards the snake's tail with her feet close to it's mouth, showing she had been swallowed head first.

The villagers killed the snake and carried it to the village.

Wa Tiba's garden is located at the base of a rocky cliff, frequented by snakes and reptiles.

Reticulated pythons are common throughout Indonesia and other areas of Southeast Asia but they rarely kill humans.

Giant pythons, which regularly exceed six metres, are commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines.

While the snakes have been known to attack small animals, attempts to eat people are rare. In 2017, a man was swallowed whole by the giant serpent on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.

A young farmer was swallowed by an enormous killer snake in March previous year after harvesting a rubber plantation.
