The black mamba is the fastest moving snake found in Africa, and one of the fastest moving snakes in the world—perhaps the fastest. There have been many exaggerated stories concerning the black mamba's speed of movement across the ground,and the elongated slender body can create the impression that it is moving faster than it really is. These stories include the myth that it can outrun a galloping horse or a running human. On 23 April 1906, on the Serengeti Plains, an intentionally provoked and angry black mamba was recorded at a speed of 11 km/h (6.8 mph), over a distance of 43 m (141 ft). A black mamba would almost certainly not be able to exceed 16 km/h (9.9 mph) and it can only maintain such relatively high speeds for short distances.
