The Black Mamba – No.1 Killer Snake in Human history
It can cover a distance of 19 kilometers in an hour. Besides, it is very aggressive and angry snake. Therefore, if it ever encounters a human, it will bite the human for sure. Its venom is neurotoxic and cardiotoxic, which means that its venom affects our nerves and heart and as a result, paralysis may occur and heart rate is badly affected.
In case of danger, Black Mamba vomits ten to twelve times and can inject 400 mg of venom into the victim’s body. As it is a very venomous snake, 20,000 people die from it every year due to lack of latest medical facilities in Africa.

The black mamba is found in the savanna forests, rocky mountain ranges and plains of South and North Africa. It can grow up to 14 feet. They are usually up to 8 feet tall. They have a life span of 11 years and weigh up to three and a half pounds.
Black mambas are usually brown and gray in color, but why are they called black mambas? The reason is that they are named because of the color inside their mouths, because when they are in a state of rage. So the inside of his mouth turns black, which is a sign of danger.
Black mambas are active during the day, so they hunt mostly during the day, while at night they rest.
In his book Black Mombas (Check Board, 2006), Adam G. Klein writes that black mambas prey by biting their prey and injecting it with venom. It eats its prey. It doesn’t usually take long for a prey to die after being bitten by a black mamba. Black mamba eats its food to the fullest.
