Black Mamba by FionaHsieh Black Mamba by FionaHsieh
I had the feel to paint a snake with flowers, and here we are!

I can't say I love black mambas, because I definitely don't want to die and they are notoriously difficult to handle and work with in captivity (at zoos) being FAST and extremely defensive, which is why even HOT (venomous) keepers don't have black mambas... but they make for a pretty art/picture! LOL

Nice~ Do they have names?

I used to have a ball python named Slytherin...but he's gone now. :( (I'm pretty sure he's a boy, cause he never got any bigger like a female would. XD)
