The Mamba du Mal: A Snake That Will Never Kill Me is an in-universe book written by Tony "Mommy" Eggmonteror.

Content

The only known segment from this book describes the Mamba du Mal's strangulatory grip and deadly venom. It also describes the snake's excellent communication skills, and how several specimens have been trained to recite encoded phrases. 

Phrases include:

  • "Summer is" = "Enemies are nearby."
  • "Over and gone" = "Probably in disguise."
  • "Dying" = "Beware of arson."

The only other creature with good enough communication skills for this is the common grass cricket.
