A village official said a 23-foot python swallowed a woman whole as she tended to her garden. Villagers cut the snake open and found Wa Tiba's body within.

Officials say they have no idea how it got there, although they're pretty sure it's not an emotional support animal.

Good news for the snake: It was adopted by the people who found it.
