I'm of the opinion that snakes are not pets. They may be cool and fun, but they don't 'like' you. Leave them in the wild for pest control.

Considering the damage non-native species are doing to our ecosystem and the expense, both public and private, they cause. WTF do we want "domestic breeders" of some very nasty animals in the US. Look at all of the pythons now loose and breeding in teh everglades. Do we need black mambas hanging around in Florida to Texas?

Mambas are in a league of their own.

As much as I like snakes, including venomous, there is no way I would keep one.

There are a select group of people who keep them and do it safely.

This lady was apparently not one of them.

Heck, come to Texas.  We have every escaped critter from snow monkeys to ostriches running around.  Axis deer are especially tasty.

This reminds me of the couple that had a snake that got loose in the middle of the night.

They found it in the baby's crib the next morning.  Baby was dead.

I had several hundred reptiles in the house at one point. If properly maintained you don't really have much of a smell. Certainly less of a smell than say a house with couple of dogs.



Also, how does 56 of them being venomous effect the smell.

Can't you read? 56 were POISONOUS.

So what probably happened is that she ate the 57th poisonous snake for breakfast, which slowly killed her. The bite mark(s) was from the poor snake's struggle for survival while being eaten alive.

This happens often in nature.

I just don't see the appeal of keeping 'hot' snakes in your house. Seems like not an 'if' but 'when' you get tagged.

When I was a kid my dad and I were on a road trip to TX from KS. Anyways, once you cross the border into TX there is a truck stop and I guess they had rattlesnakes there and for sale. I wandered off from my dad and found the rattlesnakes for sale and I remember the guy working there telling me I would have to ask my dad if I could have the snake and that he would probably tell me NO! So, Dad finds me at the snakes area and I ask dad if we can have a rattlesnake. Of course he said NO! lol

That was for effect.

I have had friends with snakes, big ones like pythons, etc, always a certain smell in the air. Maybe  they didn't clean them often enough.

Well, not sure if it was murder, but still. When you have something like that, you know there are risks. I wouldn't even call it a pet, I mean, a pet is something you can play with, enjoy, have as company. Black mamba? Not what I would call a pet.

"The venom of a black mamba can kill a human in four hours, if, say,
bitten on the ankle or the thumb. However, a bite to the face or torso
can bring death from paralysis within 20 minutes. Now, you should listen
to this, 'cause this concerns you. The amount of venom that can be
delivered from a single bite can be gargantuan. You know, I've always
liked that word... "gargantuan"... so rarely have an opportunity to use
it in a sentence. If not treated quickly with antivenom, 10 to 15
milligrams can be fatal to human beings. However, the black mamba can
deliver as much as 100 to 400 milligrams of venom from a single bite."

I absolutely love snakes, and would only kill if I intended to eat them or for protection (and no, hiking around and seeing a snake does not constitute protection).....But there is no way in hell I would keep a snake as a pet, not to mention a deadly one!

I usually kill several water moccasins every year when they venture too close to the house and outbuildings.
Rest of the snakes I usually leave alone unless I find them around the chickens.
Water moccasin/cottonmouth snakes are plenty aggresive enough for my taste.
I don't have any desire to find out how much more aggressive a black mamba is in comparison and can only guess it is much, much worse.

Reptiles and fish are not pets.  They are at best decorations.  They have no affection for you, no sense of pleasure or displeasure at your presence.  The only reason they have not eaten you yet is that they are too small or too captive to do so.

Three types of snakes one stays the fuck away from..... Black Mambas, Green Mambas, and Taipans.

A. Black Mamba was discovered in cage.

B. The padlock to the cage had been opened yet the snake was found where it should be.

C. The woman was dead.  Most sincerely dead.  

D.  Snake bites were visible on her arms.

E. She did not call anyone once she got bitten.

F.  Body discovered by boyfriend.

G. Her friends described her as an "unhappy woman."

I add that up and I get suicide by mamba, AKA pulling a Cleopatra.

ETA: If I was on network news reporting this story I would definitely ham it up when I said: "Lethal....Black....Mamba."
