A dead snake bit a 66-year-old man twice on the hand.
Jake Thomas, a volunteer who mows the local cemetery at Werris Creek, came across the snake, which he cut into half, during his usual clean-up but 45 minutes later, when he came back to get rid of the snake, it bit him twice, News.com.au reported.
Thomas said that he saw two little marks on his hand and was taken to the hospital where he was given antivenene and spent two days in intensive care.
Australian Reptile Park curator Liz Vella said that snakes retained their bite reflex and could still be venomous for up to an hour after death.
