Only handle a venomous snake as much as is necessary, fooling around with something for shits and giggles and photographs like this is reckless in my opinion. That's when accidents happen

How about we get back to the topic of the white mouthed mamba...

I just got off the phone with Jan now who is the guy the snake was given to for ID etc, he says Johan marais is going to be taking some photo's of this snake on monday. Once that has been done he will get someone to post more detailed pics.

Just joking! But it was a great find! We are waiting for Johan to come do the foto's, then we are going to release the snake! We do not intend to keep it! Sorry for those who wanted to buy it! lol

This is not much different to the green mambas with black inside their mouths. I am pretty sure this is not that rare but few people go grab mambas to see what colour mouths they have.

"White mamba" sounds like a right-wing extremist group.

That snake's pretty though.

When i see a adult man free-handle a snake, I have compassion for his disturbed childhood.

Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me with a snake identification. It looks just like a Black Mamba but it's mouth is white. I have photos but unfortunately I will admit the snake is no longer alive, due to location and the locals don't allow them to live in populated areas. I have photo's for anyone who is willing to try and identify this snake for me. The help would be greatly appreciated
