Just because you've cut the head off a venomous snake, that doesn't mean that the snake is done with you. One Santa Cruz homeowner learned that after he decapitated a rattlesnake that wandered into his garage and the head kept on going.

National Geographic has a video of Thomas Scott cornering the snake and then chopping off its head. But it's what happens afterward that's strange. The snake's head, zombie-like, keeps on moving and keeps baring its deadly fangs. According to the segment, a rattlesnake's head can still deliver a venomous bite up to an hour after it's been decapitated. Because we didn't need more reasons to fear snakes.
