*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.
