Canida shows you how to clean (and cook) a dead snake, she writes –
Roadkill. It’s what’s for dinner when the apocalypse comes. Learn how to cook snake, and you’ll be ready for almost anything. The snake in this Instructable was run over by a car; Eric found it a couple minutes later, its heart still beating, in the process of expiring by the side of the road. Since we knew both time and cause1 of death, and refrigerated the carcass promptly, it was safe to eat. If you just want the skin, the time and mechanism of death isn’t as relevant. Just be sensible, and make sure to clean yourself (and the snake parts) up properly.
