Friends of a farmer in Indonesia, were shocked to find him dead inside the belly of a snake, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

25-year-old Akbar Salubiro of Sulawesi, left his home on Sunday night to harvest palm oil.

When he did not return home, his friends became worried and went looking for him. On Monday night, people found a large snake with a swollen belly in Salubiro’s backyard.

When they took a closer look, the crowd were clearly able to see Salubiro’s boots inside the snake’s belly. One man pulled out a large knife and cut open the snake.

Shockingly, Salubiro was found dead inside. His body was still intact. It seems like the snake strangled Salubiro, and then swallowed him whole.

Someone recorded a video of the snake being cut open and the body appearing inside. The video was uploaded to the Internet, where it went viral.

Salubiro’s wife Munu, who was not home, learned about her husband’s death when she came across the video. The snake has been identified as a Reticulated python.

Those snakes are boa constrictor, which suffocate their prey and then swallow them whole.
