No, it can't. When a snake is killed in that manner, it's body can continue to writhe and wiggle, but it isn't because the snake is still alive. It's the snake's nerves that cause the muscles to continue to twitch for a while after death. But even though the snake is dead, you should never put your hand, or any other part of your body near the mouth of the snake, since the venom is still active.
