    This thread was like watching a bad car wreck, I didn't want to see it - but watched the whole thing. Let me guess, late February and early March the snakes are probably out in full force? I hope I don't see any, other people's photos are good enough to quell my curiosity.

    I saw two in Zimbabwe if Feb. 2012 while hunting leopard. One slithered across the road in front of us and then stopped for a look-see right beside us. It was large! Definitely over 12 feet and thicker than the ones pictured here. Gun metal greenish -gray!

    Hunted:
    Namibia (1), South Africa (3) & USA (most Western States, including AK & HI). Too bad spear fishing is not called "fish hunting" or, I could add a few extra countries (couldn't resist weaving that in somehow, sorry).
    Mambas remind me of politicians, because they are almost as slippery and dangerous as politicians.
