Severed Rattlesnake Head Bites Texas Man

WABCA Texas man is recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake that he had just decapitated

A Texas man learned the hard way that a headless rattlesnake is still very, very unsafe.

According to KIII-TV in South Texas, Jennifer Sutcliffe and her husband were out doing yard work near Corpus Christi when they spotted a four-foot rattlesnake on their property. But when he bent down to pick up the snake's corpse, the animal's severed head bit him. "He had to rip it off".

"The head end of a cut-up rattlesnake can continue to function, including the venom glands, for a long time afterward", anti-venom doctor Leslie Boyer told Gizmodo.

A Texas man is recovering in hospital after a near-death experience with a rattlesnake - that was decapitated.

"Within two miles down the road, he was going through seizures, slipping out of conscious and couldn't see".

Sutcliffe said the first 24 hours were the worst. The trauma surgeon who treated the man told KIII that, in a normal snakebite, a person might receive 2-4 doses of anti-venom; in the case of this man, it took 26 rounds.

There are some GRAPHIC headless rattlesnake videos on YouTube, including one showing the body of a rattler still moving after decapitation.

He was raced to hospital and given 26 doses of anti-venom.

He is now in a stable condition.

In the movies, people try to suck out the venom themselves or some other home remedy.

If you are bitten, keep the wound below the heart, immobilize the area, wash the bite area with soap and water, and call 911.
