It's Black Mamba season in Durban: Here is all you need to know and what to do
Based on an unreleased racing prototype, the Mamba is one of the fastest ships in production. It can also deliver a lot of punishment, boasting one huge and two large hardpoints. This emphasis on firepower and speed means the ship can hit hard and fast, vanishing before the target has a chance to react. Comparisons to the Fer-de-Lance, also produced by Zorgon Peterson, will be inevitable, but the Mamba is in fact faster in a straight line, while being slightly less maneuverable. The Mamba is a ship manufactured by Zorgon Peterson. It directly competes with Zorgon Peterson's other premium combat vessel, the Fer-de-Lance , featuring a similar array of advantages and drawbacks at a similar price point. The Mamba's key distinguishing characteristic is its increased speed potential over the Fer-de-Lance, reflecting its heritage as a racing ship. In a press release announcing the ship's debut, Zorgon Peterson stated, "If it's speed and firepower you want, the Mamba is for you. Based on a racing prototype, it's the fastest commercially available starship, and it sports enough hardpoints for a range of devastating weaponry.
Mambas are fast moving venomous snakes of the genus Dendroaspis which literally means "tree asp " in the family Elapidae. Four extant species are recognised currently; three of those four species are essentially arboreal and green in colour, whereas the so-called black mamba , Dendroaspis polylepis , is largely terrestrial and generally brown or grey in colour. All are native to various regions in sub-Saharan Africa and all are feared throughout their ranges, especially the black mamba. In Africa there are many legends and stories about mambas.
Between them, snake catchers Nick Evans and Jason Arnold have already rescued more than 20 mambas since the beginning of this month, and they have advised residents not to panic if they come across one. Evans and Arnold said there had not been an increase in the number of black mambas in Durban, but the snakes were more active at this time because it was mating season. If people see two black mambas wrapped around each other in the open, those are two males wrestling for a female. Recently a man was bitten. He pinned down a black mamba with a rake.
