What’s In A Name?
The name mamba often conjures up visions of an aggressive venomous snake. However, by taking the time to investigate, one might find that first impressions can be deceiving. Dendroaspis means “tree” and “small venomous snake.” Green Mambas fit this description very well. They are shy, slender snakes that rarely exceed 7 feet in length. They spend most of their time in trees and bushes.
