This is true - a rattlesnake or snapping turtle can still bite you after its head is off. My dad used to have them bite a stick just so that they were less likely to accidentally bite a kid who happened to poke them after they were dead. Also, once he scared my momma nearly to death when she was frying up (dead and dressed) frog legs in the skillet - their muscles/nerves contracted and they twitched around in the skillet. She had the last laugh - he had to fry them up after that!
