Details
The black mamba is considered to be the most dangerous snake in the world. It is very nervous and quick to bite if it feels threatened. Without an antidote, its bite is fatal within minutes.
Black Mambas are capable of crawling up to 20 km/h. However, they are more likely to flee than hunt because they are ambush predators that creep up on their prey. When a black mamba feels threatened, it raises its "upper body", opens its black mouth and hisses. Those who don't leave it alone and retreat slowly will encounter its fangs. And not just once. Unlike most other snakes, black mambas bite up to twelve times.
