A really link that just goes how beautiful snake really are!

I found it very interesting that the photo of the black mamba biting the guy on the leg that was doing the rounds a while ago is actually of this photographer. You can clearly see the black background he uses for the photo's. Apparently he didn't even know he had been bitten and only noticed the snake biting him when he looked at the picture later.

This was his explanation I saw on another site.

So you dont wear long pants because it might disturb the snake? You allow it to coil around your leg? It bites directly into an artery but you have a mushroom size swelling? Your treatment regimen is Red Bull. Nothing happens to you? Sorry if I dont believe you. Last I heard Costa Rica did not allow any venomous exotic snakes there.

Real pity because the photos are nice.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Wow, OK! Definitely just a publicity stunt then!

Looking at the picture again, is that Mamba even alive? He seems to be holding it in place with the hook stick?
