I know there is a Black Mamba and a Green Mamba.
But is there any other members of this family? Also is colour the only difference between them?
Black mambas are actually brown in color. They get their name from the blue-black of the inside of their mouths, which they display when threatened.
The black mamba has either a dark olive, olive green, grey brown or metal color skin depending on what area on the country the Black Mamba is found. As Black Mamba’s begin to age, their skin starts to become darker.
The green mamba may bear a variety of colors, ranging from greenish-yellow, olive green, emerald green to sky blue or yellow. Its long tail has yellow scales, which are edged in black.
Apart from the colours, there is the issue of the nature. The green Mamba is more docile and less poisonous than the black mamba (but you can't tell except u experience it and that is what I sure won't advise). Check the hub by Hassam titled THE MAMBA. It has all the information you need.
The size of scale and the length is a major difference between the two.
Black Mamba is the longest snake in Africa which
is venomous and grows to an average length of 2.5metres and can even sometime grow to a length of 4.3metrs. Its name was derived from the black coloration in the mouth.
A Green Mamba(western) is a long thin venomous snake native to West Africa. It has large green scales outlined in black and grows up to 2 meters in length.

I love watching documentaries and reading facts about snakes - although like most people I do have a bit of a fear.Anyway, I remember watching an old movie many years ago set in Africa. In the movie they referred to the Black Mamba, I think it was 'A Black Racer'. Is this name just fictional made...

I'm a fan of Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour, so here's my idea... name a song with a color in the title or a band with a color in their nameBlue Suede Shoes

I remember seeing a movie a number of years ago that I'm sure referred to the Black Mamba as a 'black racer'. Is this just fiction or was the Black Mamba actually called by this name at times?
