A black mamba snake has killed a Zimbabwe man’s wife, daughter, and nephew in a single attack.

The black mamba inhabits a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa and is found in several countries across the continent including Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, and many more.

The snake has a fearsome reputation and is referred to as “the deadliest and fastest snake in Africa” by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).

Black mambas are known for their extremely potent neurotoxic venom. The African Snakebite Institute states the venom is capable of causing death within three to 16 hours if untreated.

Black mambas can grow up to 14 feet long, though the average size is about half that. The snakes reside in savannas, rocky hills and open woodlands and like sleeping in hollow trees, rock crevices, and burrows.

SANBI describes the snakes as “nervous animals” that prefer to stay away from humans, but the potential for human conflict is still there.
