“Green Mamba” Its highly venomous can kill a human in 30 minutes with a single bite

The eastern green mamba, Dendroaspis angusticeps, is a large-sized snake that is indigenous to the coastal regions of southern and eastern Africa.

Tһіѕ һіɡһɩу ⱱeпomoᴜѕѕпаke can be spotted in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Zambia, and South Africa.

It is quite easy to identify a green mamba because of its coloration and its moderately compressed and very slender physique.

They are also renowned for their side view, as this highly ⱱeпomoᴜѕ ѕпаke appears to be smiling from the side!

This green mamba is a large-sized snake, with a slightly pale greenish-yellow belly and a bright green-colored dorsal side. It possesses a tapering tail that is medium to long.

They have a coffin-shaped head, similar to black mambas (Dendroaspis polylepis), that is quite elongated and narrow. They are a member of the Elapidae family and the genus Dendroaspis.

This mamba species is also commonly known as the East African green mamba, the common green mamba, the green mamba, and the white mouthed mamba.

These species are arboreal (living in trees) and inhabit coastal bushes, dunes, mountainous forests, areas of dense well-shaded vegetation, thickets, and farm trees.

Rarely found in open terrain, this mamba is commonly spotted on trees where courtship and mating take place.

Males are known to begin courting in the rainy season between April and the month of June when they track down a female by her scent trail!

The eastern green mamba, Dendroaspis angusticeps, has a vivid coloration with its scales being smooth, narrow, and oblique.

It is a large snake in a slightly pale shade of greenish-yellow. Its pupils are round with a narrow edge that is ochre or golden yellow colored.

Eastern green mambas are known as the white mouthed mamba as the inside of their mouth can be bluish-white or white in color, unlike the black mouth of black mambas.

Their narrow coffin-shaped head, like that of a black mamba, possesses a unique angle between the eye and crown.

The average speed of the white-mouthed mamba is 7 mph (11.2 kph)! This speed is the same as an average human’s jogging speed.

These snakes slither only 18 ft (5.4 m) in a day on average. Eastern green mambas are skillfulclimbers and can move swiftly.

These mambas are rarely found in open terrain, inhabiting trees mainly. They are very challenging to locate because of their amazing camouflaging ability.

They are excellent at camouflaging themselves among bushes and trees. They can be seen on the ground only when they are thirsty, catching prey, or want to bask in the sunlight.

These snakes are proficient climbers who can move swiftly. At night time, the eastern green mamba coils itself up in leaves, or sometimes a tree hollow, to sleep.

They tend to remain sedentary for a majority of their time and remain in their territory for few days. They only move to catch prey or to breed.

Male green mambas court females in the rainy season between April and the month of June.

A male mamba tracks a female by her scent trail and he courts the female mamba by tongue flicking her continuously.

He will also try to attract a female by aligning his body right next to hers, to which the female will reciprocate by lifting her tail if she is interested.

Mambas are arboreal and therefore courtship and mating happens in trees only.

The female lays between four and 17 eggs, 15 on average, in leaves or tree hollows, that are 1.8-2.2 in (4.5-5.5 mm) long and 0.9-1.1 in (2.2-2.7 cm) wide.

The eggs are incubated for three months. In the wild, snakelets are 12-18 in (30.4-45.7 cm) long whereas they are 17 in (43.1 cm) in captivity.

They are blue-green in color at birth and become the same color as adults when they reach 30 in (76.2 cm) in size.
