I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

The Black Mumba is said to be the deadliest snake, and it is swift and aggressive. It is notorious for its sharp teeth, which repeatedly strike humans. The Black Mumba may attack up to 12 times in a row. This type of attack is a fatal encounter that has the capability to kill someone within 30 minutes. A single bite can kill up to 10 to 15 people.

The venom is a fast-acting neurotoxin, and without antivenom, the mortality rate is nearly 100 percent. This percentage would be the highest among all of the venomous snakes.
