7-Meter-Long Python Swallows Indonesian Woman
betcha all the curry will end up indigestion ......~S~
Well, you have to be careful with these kinds of stories. I have read plenty like this that did turn out to be hoaxes of some sort. I imagine that they could probably swallow a small woman or child though.
...my dad always said believe half of what you see and nothing about what you hear
...I usually skip reading stories like this of foreign countries because a lot of the local/US stories are full of garbage--so I know these foreign stories have even less value
Most of the time humans are going to be just too big for any snake to swallow whole without dying or choking. They do constrict and break the bones first so it makes it easier to swallow the prey, but we are pretty large prey for most snakes.
...well, some Asians/etc are a lot smaller than Americans, and females less so
so, she might not have been that big
says here average female height Indonesia 4' 10'
US 5' 3'
plus the US has a lot ''fatter''/big bone body types compared to Asians/etc
I can definitely see this woman fitting in the snake easier than an American would

I think a lot of 3rd world countries, where perhaps nutrition is poor, people don't grow as tall. Of course there are always just smaller people too. Depends on your genetics too.

That's idiotic. You can kill the snake that way. The snake doesn't know any better. It just does what comes naturally to it.
I see I forgot to put a question mark in my OP-denoting ''true or not??''
I added one
