I live in Florida (USA), so I am not familiar with SA laws. They are pretty cheap here. Anywhere from $100-$175

I have been told that the tanzanian mamba's venom is not as strong as the southern ones and is possibly not even lethal. I would not want to chance it though.

It is illegal to import a species which is indigenous to SA so these specimens would not be legal here.

Nice snake.

Hi...


Stunning snakes...

Here´s a quite good caresheet about housing Eastern green mambas:

http://www.venomousreptiles.org/articles/295

That caresheet is good, but maybe not complete because I think he missed all about humidity, temperature and breeding/incubating and some other interesting stuff, but still very good... :)


Have you ever spent some thinking of the scientific name of eastern green mamba? Dendroaspis angusticeps ... Dendro means tree and aspis means viper and angusti means narrow and ceps means head... "Tree viper with a narrow head"... They forgot the green color - viridis, and "viper" ? But otherwise the scientific name is quite good... :D
Compare this scientific name with Aspidelaps lubricus infuscatus and see what you find out... The man who gave the Namibian coral cobra it´s scientific name must have been drinking a lot of bad stuff...

Hellemar - It fun thinking about the meaning of latin names. In reference to what you were saying about the green mamba name, try guess what a "Many Scaled Tree Asp" is? :)

I think the word "aspis" actaully has its roots in the day of Cleopatra and she was bitten by a "poisonous serpent" called an asp. The snake that bit her was apparently a cobra (probably egyptian). Nevertheless I think ALL "poisonous serpents" were referred to as "asps". So I always thought that "asp" or "aspis" meant or referred to a "poisonous serpent".

Makes you wonder about the pythons "Aspidites"?
