Even after it’s dead, a snake can still kill you with its venom. Don’t play with the carcass, or handle the head. Persons have died stepping on the snake bare foot days after the snake was killed. In a lot of countries it is good manners to hang a dead snake high up in a tree or throw it where persons can not be harmed by it, when it is killed or found dead. To not do so is considered to be very bad mannered, and in some cases almost criminal.
