22-Foot Python Swallows Grandmother In Indonesian Jungle

Hey snake, save some for the rest of the forest.

An Indonesian woman died this week when a 22-foot-long python decided to be a huge pig and swallow the woman while she was out working on a rubber plantation in the Jambi province on Sunday.

According to CNN Indonesia, the woman, identified as 54-year-old Jahrah, didn’t return home after her rubber-collecting duties. Her husband went to where she worked and discovered her sandals, jacket, and knife. There was no sign of Jahrah.

On Monday, the husband returned to the area with a search team, and then there it was, the monster python with a bulge as if it had been crushing draft beers and chicken wings. The locals had a pretty good idea what had happened to Jahrah.

She became a massive meal for this pig.

Eventually, the snake was cut open and there she was — grandma. Yes, she was a goner. Suffocated to death like the python eating a whole deer.

“It turned out that the woman we were looking for was in the snake’s stomach,” a local villager told media outlets.

Indonesian snake experts believe the python turned on Jahrah due to a lack of animals in the area where they typically feed on wild boar. One expert, Anita, told the Jambi Tribune that pythons don’t move very far from their habitat and if there aren’t wild boar to eat, they’re going to go to plan B.

“For now the prey of large animals has decreased. So logically, it is impossible for large animals to be full by eating small mice,” the expert added.

Sobering news, right?

WARNING: Python video from Indonesia!

Let this sink in if you had some Indonesian backcountry trek planned to shoot some Instagram photos. This story of Jahrah should be your notice that these snakes aren’t playing games and eating humans could be their new go-to as the world continues to evolve.

That’s why these damn snakes have to be eradicated from the Everglades, as OutKick’s Tomi Lahren told you about earlier this year. These snakes will get to 22-foot-long and they’ll run out of gators to eat and they’ll start eating kayakers.

How does this happen before the human is able to get away?

According to the San Diego Zoo, the python grabs prey with its teeth and “quickly wraps coils of its body around the prey and squeezes.”

That’s right, Jahrah was likely dead before she ever went down the feed tube.

“The python doesn’t actually crush the prey and break its bones, though. Instead, it squeezes tightly so that its prey can’t breathe; each time its prey exhales, the constrictor tightens its coils to take up space, causing suffocation. The python can also feel the prey’s heart beating, so when it stops, the snake knows it is safe to release its coils and begin to eat,” the Zoo reports.

Good luck out there in the Indonesian jungle. It feels like today’s news is a game-changer.

  1. Dear Joe Kinsey, how this article is written is horrendous. This was forwarded to me by my husband and I was obviously interested enough to read it. It’s clearly shocking. But story telling about elderly women being eating by a python in presumably harsh conditions and referring to her dead body in the pythons belly as draft beer and chicken wings is f***ked up. Amongst the other stupid shit you said.This article may never reach the family in Indonesia but if it did that grieving family would be mortified. Don’t say f***ked up shit for likes and clout. Don’t be an unsympathetic shitty person. Just a little karmic advise. Thanks!

  2. This comment from fellow reader who’s head and heart is in the right place. Connie deserves a round of applause and then there is this this Rat D*** Ugly kid Joe. This seemed to be an actual well written piece from you and I wish you deserved the proper virtual tip of the hat, but you just had to throw in those couple lines, as mentioned by Connie, where just because you were self named ” a scrotum with legs” and the less catchy bathroom stall name given to you at pilot truck stop glory holes from PA to IOWA, the one and only “scrotum with a modem, who begged that Thor,Son of Oden be enchanted to unload some onto Joe’s loathsome bum and he was owed some, and when we interviewed the snake in regards to why he would such a thing, and after a toxicology results came back… the snake claims and has a witness that snake rapist Joe had slipped some snake date rape pills into the snakes drink that day and Joe bragged and I quote,” I’ve taken bigger in my mouth” and begged the snake to send him skinless pics. In a sick and shocking twist, the snake was an underage minor which Joe was aware of and is now facing charges of oral sex against the snake and Joe denied sex but that was also shown to be another Joe Lie as he had been banging the giant snake for several months and was actually found sitting on top of snake eggs in a homemade nest keeping them warm enough to hatch. The snake says he hates everything about you Joe. Perv.
