Include a thermo controller, I did notice your currency use is $ therefore I can not give an estimate price.
As a general rule, the more we learn about snakes and their ways, the less fear we have of them. This is usually not so with the Mamba.
The more one learns of his ways, the greater grows the dread of him.
He, without doubt, is the King of Snakes in South Africa.
For quickness, aggressiveness, and the deadly nature of his venom, he has no equal.

I removed some of the list, including links(because they were to long) and my estimate was around 60-70 I believe. And the link I found(I can show if needed) Was temperature controllable. Thanks for the advice though!
