i would say that's a myth. it sounds a bit far fetched. the snake would rather go the opposite direction or away from the galloping horse. :hmz:

myth.
The black mamba IS the fastest snake in the world but snakes are not generally fast creatures. The average maximum speed of a black mamba is around 20km/h whereas that of a galloping horse is around 64km/h. I think. so, I would say, definitely a myth.

A leopard's tail can almost or nearly be as long as it's body. Not necessarily always a fact that it is as long as it's body.
