REALLY SCARY REPTILIAN TUESDAY!

HALLOWEEN WEEK!

REALLY SCARY REPTILIAN TUESDAY!

We’re staying in the grasslands of Africa on this Really Scary Reptilian Tuesday to meet one of the most deadly snakes in the world. We’ll be looking for this reptile from the safari truck so everyone stays safe! Are you ready?

 

MEET THE BLACK MAMBA!

   Range/Habitat: East-South Africa/ forests-grasslands

   Diet: Carnivore: birds, small mammals

   Length: 8 ¼-11 ft

   Conservation Status: common

 

 

 

Fun Facts:

  • Black Mambas are very fast, they can reach speeds of 12 ½ mph.
  • Black mambas are extremely venomous.
  • They are a brown/gray color. They get their name from the color of the inside of their mouths.
  • Black mambas are very territorial.
  • They are diurnal (active during the day).

Black mambas are very dangerous and should be watched from a distance for sure! These fast snakes are definitely best left alone!

  1. I saw a Nature show about the Black Mamba. They are fascinating snakes… and very dangerous because they come into people’s houses.

    BTW, I want to thank you SO much for the book! Ya know the old saying that when the student is ready, the teacher appears? I am ready for this book. 🙂

    • We are so happy you like the book! YAY!!!! We hope you enjoy it!

      Yes, black mambas are not to be messed with- too bad they don’t understand- houses are not for you!

Ellie and Edmond wants to hear what ya have to say!
