..Green mamba(Dendroaspis viridis)...unfortunately...London Zoo...

Mambas belong to a group of venemous snakes called elapids. This short fanged group of snakes includes the Coral Snake of North America and the Cobras.
The bite and venom of the Western Green Mamba can be rapidly fatal (possibly as early as 30 minutes).
The green Mamba is difficult to see in green foliage as its fishnet markings closely resemble the foliage of its habitat. It is fast moving despite its size which can be up to 2 meters in length.

Hello Primo, welcome to TrekNature
The snake can look very attractive, and I especially like this green one. Well captured by you - nice and sharp, good details and colours.
But is it poisonous?
It is better if you could write more notes on the subject - Wikipedia is a good site to get information from. Some member won't look at a photo if there are no notes - you definitely need more than one line.
Well done

Hello Primo,
Great close up, fantastic sharpness and depth of field, beautiful vivid colors, superb details and clarity.
