Photo:Photographer bitten by a deadly black mamba snake

Lucky escape: Nature photographer Mark Laita was capturing snakes for his latest project when he was bitten by a deadly black mamba...but didn't realize until the next day

This is the terrifying moment Mark Laita, a wildlife photographer was bitten by one of this subjects – and didn’t even realize he had suffered a potentially fatal snake bite until the image was developed.  The only reason he survived the attack by the black mamba was because it was a dry bite with no venom injected. A poisoned bite from a black mamba is 100 per cent fatal. 

Lucky chap!
