Texas man bitten by severed rattlesnake head almost dies

The severed head of a snake can still be very dangerous a Texas man found out recently

"It came up with its head, so I screamed". "We have very small dogs and I have a grandchild who was luckily not there at the time".

The skull of an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake.

That's when the dead rattlesnake's severed head bit him. When he went to pick up the head to dispose of it, he was bitten.

"The head actually turned around and grabbed onto his hand".

While Jennifer said she was scared too, she tried to stay positive.

As we read in a yarn from Elizabeth Palermo for Live Science, a rattlesnake's bite is a reflex the can occur even after its death.

Because the head was severed from the body, the reptile is believed to have released an extremely large amount of deadly venom into her husband's hand.

Jennifer, who is a nurse, immediately got Jeremy into the auto and dialed 911 to figure out which of the local hospitals had antivenin.

According to the station, the man immediately began having seizures, lost his vision and began experiencing internal bleeding. Sutcliffe met up with an ambulance and her husband was ultimately air-lifted to a hospital.

"They HALO-Flighted him into the hospital", Sutcliffe said. Eventually, Jeremy was put into an induced coma and placed on a ventilator. She said people normally get four doses.

More than a week later, the man is in stable condition, but still showing signs of weakened kidney function due to the shocking bite.

Meanwhile, Trauma surgeon Michael told reporters that Jennifer did the right thing in calling for help as soon as possible.

"He's thankful to be alive; it was very scary", she said, adding that she hopes what happened can act as a cautionary tale for those who encounter rattlesnakes.
