A deadly and venomous black mamba snake has been killed by terrified students of MOUAU in Abia state.
Some students of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, Abia state, have displayed a poisonous snake captured by a trap on Monday at one of their fish farms.
The snake is actually a black mamba. The black mamba is a venomous snake endemic to parts of sub-Saharan Africa. Specimens vary in colour from grey to dark brown, but not black. Juvenile black mambas tend to be lighter in color than adults and darken with age.
