An elderly man bitten by a taipan at his Cairns home has died after spending nearly a week in hospital.

David Pitt, 77, went into cardiac arrest after the highly venomous snake bit him on the foot at his Yorkeys Knob home last Tuesday night.

He was rushed to Cairns Hospital where he died on Monday.
