Decapitated Snake Bites Itself (VIDEO)

If this snake wasn't already dead, we're pretty sure it is now.

An amazing video from Huntsville, Ala., shows a copperhead snake bite itself after being decapitated.

Sam Billeter, who filmed the video, says he killed the snake -- which had been hiding in his woodpile -- so it wouldn't bite his son or his dog.

While this isn't the first time we've heard of a decapitated snake that still had the ability to bite, it's certainly the first time we've seen a snake's head bite its own body.
