The black mamba is the most venomous snake alive.
The Black Mamba is the longest venomous snake in Africa. It's the fastest snake in the world, capable of moving at a speed of 4.32 to 5.4 meters per second. The snake is named black mamba due to the colour inside its mouth.
Black mambas live in the savannas and rocky hills of southern and eastern Africa.
The Black Mamba can strike so fast that u will not be able to run from it.
The black mamba has quite a reputation. It is one of the world’s deadliest snakes; it is the fastest land snake in the world; and it is Africa’s biggest poisonous snake. This snake’s potential danger has been the subject of many African myths and it has been blamed for thousands of human deaths.The black mamba's reputation is not undeserved. These snakes are fast, skittish and highly aggressive when threatened. Their venom is potentially lethal, and though antivenom exists, it is not widely available in the black mamba’s native habitat of southern and eastern Africa. For this reason, they are considered a top killer in a land where nearly 20,000 people die from snake bites every year.The black mamba is one of four species of mamba. Others are Jameson’s mamba, eastern green mamba and western green mamba. Mambas are slender, agile and active, with smooth scales and powerful venom. They all live throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
