South Africa’s ‘Biggest’ Black Mamba Roams Free?by Dalene Ingham-Brown

"This massive Black Mamba was spotted close to some graves near a sugarcane plantation in Richards Bay in South Africa. Its estimated to be about 6 and half meters long and 45 years old, born around 1960! This snake has enough venom to kill 400 men!" - Facebook User

*Gulp* Thanks go to Mark E Willis for sharing this photo on Facebook.

*Post Update* Seeing as this photo and information is sourced by content shared on Facebook, additional facts and verification that this Black Mamba exists would be much appreciated. Below are a few more pictures of Black Mambas big enough to make your skin crawl.
