When you think of snakes, a chilling feeling flows beneath your skin, and your arm hairs begin to stand. I'm not talking about domesticated snakes like a grass snake, boa, or Burmese python. I'm talking about the reptiles that are considered the most deadliest of all, like rattle snakes, cobras, and vipers. But there is one snake that tops the venomous cake, and that is the snake you will be getting a lesson on. You will learn “how to draw a black mamba, step by step”. The black mamba is one of the worlds fastest, venomous, and lethal snakes in existence. Despite their name, these reptiles are actually brown in color. They get the name “black mamba”, because of the bluish black color inside of their mouths which can be seen when they open up and say “ahhh”. These highly aggressive snakes can be found in Africa, and are linked to many, many human deaths from their deadly bites. As you know, there is a lot of superstition and myths that come out of Africa, and the black mamba is talked about in many stories and tales. In their native country, they are considered the longest snake that takes refuge in the rocky hills of eastern parts of Africa. Reaches sizes of up to fourteen feet, black mambas are THE fastest snakes in the world. Did you know that they can slither and slide up to almost thirteen miles per hour? It's true, for an animal that has no legs, or feet, these snakes can outrun a turtle. Everything I have said so far makes this snake seem pretty fearless huh? Well, the truth is, the black mamba is actually a very shy snake unless cornered into a sticky situation. Once that happens, the shy olive colored snake goes away, and the ferocious, killer is released. Before, just one bite from a black mamba would kill someone in twenty minutes flat. Nowadays, there is an antivenin that can potentially save someones life if that person is in the right place at the right time. Truly, these snakes should not be reckoned with, or approached unless you have a death wish. Learning "how to draw a black mamba, step by step", will take you on a slithering journey you have never been on before. Enjoy this tutorial, and be sure to come back real soon. Peace out folks, and happy drawing!
