A copperhead snake is decapitated, then attacks its tail. 

But why does the tail react to the bite even though it isn’t attached to a brain? The answer is reflexes, which act as local motor responses to local sensations, explaining the unconscious way you blink when you feel something close to your eye, or gag when something is lodged in your throat.
