    yes, depending on local and state laws.

    Florida has a permit system for hots.

    Not really much point in worrying about how venomous a snake is once it's venomous enough to kill you.

    I know Al Coritz keeps some green and black mambas and has some videos working with them.

    mambas are as legal to own as any other venomous as long as your in a less restrictive state. Laws are different in every state and countie and town. In some places it could be legal for you to own something in your countie and state but illegal in your city and vice versa. Alot of people think that if its legal in state then its legal everywhere in your state and thats not always the case

    Its not the venom of Mamba that makes it dangerous. It the animals nature and speed that can spoil a nice day.
