The green mamba is one of the most venomous snakes in the world.
One bite from one green mamba has enough neurotoxins to kill dozens of people — yet it is still milder than the venom of the green mamba’s cousin the black mamba.
Green mambas are arboreal snakes from South-East Africa where they dwell in tropical rain forests.
Green mambas have a brilliant green color and some people do keep them in captivity as pets in spite of the fact that a single bite from a green mamba can kill not just one but dozens of humans. Beautiful as they are, green mambas are deadly. I am sure the law permits it and I am not for a nanny state, I just hope that it is not one of my neighbors who decides to keep such pet. Really you have to be seriously confident in your ability to handle a green mamba, or perhaps just criminally insane, to decide to keep one as a pet, regardless how pretty it looks.
