A Corpus Christi man is recovering after being bitten by a rattlesnake, despite the snake's head already being cut off.

To prepare for the day's festivities, Jennifer told The Washington Post that she and her husband made a decision to tidy up the yard of their home near Lake Corpus Christi in southern Texas.

A snake can still bite and release venom for up to several hours after it has been decapitated. However, when he then bent down to dispose of the reptile, it retaliated - or rather, its severed head did.

The man immediately began having seizures, internal bleeding and vision loss. According to reports, the man from Texas required 26 doses of anti-venom after the snakebite. Instead, the Oklahoma State Department of Health recommends getting a description of the snake and its markings.

More than a week after the incident, the man is reportedly in stable condition, with some weakened kidney function.

"Which in that case since there is no body, it released all its venom into him at that point, so he had a lot of venom", she said in an interview.

"Some people are saying we deserve it, it's karma", Ms Sutcliffe said.

Ms Sutcliffe told Chron.com she chose not to name her husband to the media because she didn't want him to receive any negative attention.

He was eventually airlifted to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital, she said. "He had to rip the snake's head off", Jennifer said".

Mrs Sutcliffe said her husband needed 26 doses of antivenom, where a normal patient gets two to four doses.

If being bitten by a zombie snake isn't bad enough, it turns out that Mr. Sutcliffe's problems were only just beginning. Biologists warn that most bites from venomous snakes occur when people try to neutralize the snake by killing it, rather than simply leaving it alone.

The bite came just a week after a kayaker in SC was hospitalized after a rattlesnake attacked him after falling from a tree.
