Mambas, of the genus Dendroaspis, are fast-moving land-dwelling snakes of Africa. They belong to the family of Elapidae which includes cobras, coral snakes and kraits, all of which can be highly deadly. The black mamba (Dendroaspis polylepis) is the longest venomous snake in Africa, with a potent neurotoxic venom that attacks the nervous system, and cardiotoxins which attack the heart. The bite is often fatal to humans without access to proper first aid and subsequent anti venom treatment, because the venom shuts down the lungs and heart. Prior to the availability of anti venom, envenomations by members of this genus carried a nearly 100% fatality rate. However, with anti venom being much more available today, fatalities have become much more rare.
