How often should I be misting my six foot female eastern green mamba enclosure?

They don’t require overly high humidity. I would not mist them at all except for a day or two before they shed. They drink out of water bowls easily to.

I agree, i kept one for a while, I sprayed once a week and the water bowl did the rest. Very nice display snakes

I have never been to Africa, and you'd know more than me about Eastern Green Mambas in the wild and their captive husbandry, but don't they live in tropical rainforests that have a lot of humidity?

We don't really have a rainforest in SA.
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”
