Black Mambas are fucking terrifying, man.
They are as skittish as they are graceful, and like most snakes, avoids humans and only attacks in self defense. The problem, however, is that it perceives anything within 40 meters as an immediate threat. You can absolutely aggro it without even knowing. The Black Mamba is also the fastest snake in Africa, and also quite possibly the fastest snake in the world, and it will close those 40 meters VERY fast. Despite its slender frame, it is also quite strong, and with its strength, it can lift its head well off the ground, and even lob itself at you. Most Black Mamba bites on humans are on the upper body. And this killhouse doesn’t bite once, oh no, because of its speed and aggression once engaged, it is known to bite dozens of times when it actually attacks. That leads to severe envenomation, since, well, Black Mamba venom is exceedingly toxic and just one bite is fatal.
Just really don’t fuck with Black Mambas, man.
