Even though attacks on humans are extremely rare this is so insane and another reason why we should NOT have snakes as pets!
"How is it possible for a man to end up in the belly of a snake? That's the question many were asking after the body of 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro was found intact inside a 23-foot reticulated python Sunday in Indonesia.
(A highly graphic video shows the body's recovery.) Here's a look at the science: First comes death. Though python attacks on humans are extremely rare, it's not difficult for a reticulated python, the world's longest snake, to kill a man.
Pythons wrap themselves around their victims, crushing them. Constricting snakes like pythons don't actually suffocate their victims but kill by cutting off blood flow, which is a quicker death, reports National Geographic. "The heart literally doesn't have enough strength to push against the pressure," vertebrate ecologist Scott Boback tells the magazine."
