1: Green Mamba
At number 1 is the Eastern green mamba. As the name implies, this mamba lives perched high in trees of verdant and dense forests of eastern Africa and it’s beautiful green colour blends absolutely well into its surroundings, as the most thriving snakes frequently do. The Green Mamba is an adventuresome snake, getting up to all sorts of shenanigans when exposed to human habitation during the search for food. Rodents are like fillet mignon to the Green Mamba and human settlements attract the rodents which in turn lures the Green Mamba from its treetop throne. The common victims of the Green Mamba are mostly domesticated animals like dogs and other human pets. This snake is fearful of humans and prefers to flee in the face of danger. Their venom, however, is very fast acting and can take a mere 30 minutes to kill the unlucky victim.
