Snakes are in fact edible, and when they are cooked properly they can actually taste quite good. It is however important for those who want to try cooking snakes to remove the head, as this is where the venom is. There are certain things one must remember when going about preparing a snake before it can be cooked and eaten, such as to remove all of the insides.
One thing that many people do not know is that shortly after a snake dies, it can still bit someone when they put their hand in or around the mouth. This is why it so important to take caution when removing the head of a venomous snake before cooking it.
