A missing Indonesian grandmother was swallowed whole over the weekend by a 22-foot python, officials said.
The family of a 54-year-old woman said she went missing on Sunday after collecting rubber from a plantation near her home in Jambi, Indonesia, according to CNN Indonesia. The city is located on Sumatra, her second longest island in the country.
Betala Jambi Police Chief S. Herafa said that when her husband went looking for her, he found only her sandals, jacket, headscarf and knife.
The sheriff said two days after the disappearance, a search party found the reticulated python with a large bulge on its abdomen.
police chief said In The Times of India, a woman was found inside a snake’s stomach, her body appearing mostly intact.

Reticulated pythons are the longest snakes in the world, with some growing up to 28 feet, according to the Natural History Museum.
Snakes wrap their bodies tightly around the trunk and use the upward force of their muscles to climb trees.
