Colored much more brightly than is western cousin, the Eastern Green Mamba is highly venomous, and also contains enough venom in a single bite to be fatal to several adult humans over the course of just a few hours.
This particular mamba’s bite will act swiftly on the nerves, muscles and heart, and will begin to spread rapidly through the affected tissues. Not only will a bite from the Eastern Green Mamba cause difficulty breathing and swallowing, it will also cause respiratory paralysis if left untreated a for long enough period of time.
