Can you post more pics of the whole body? That is rather unusual.

Some genetic mutation perhaps ? But yes more pics would be good.

Lol, you made me imagine Black Mambas were as popular as corn snakes in the pet trade and there were all different color morphs!

As far a I know the rest of theis mamba's body is normal colouration for black mamba's, just the mouth that is white.

OK ! but what would cause a Mamba's mouth to come out white? Or would this happen to be one of those once in a blue moon incidents, sort of like an Albino but not quite ?

My appologies but this is fascinating to say the least.

I really wouldn't know know to be honest, something the owner is trying to find out himself.
