Dear Venomland Members and Friends, Venomland is a little more than 6 years old now and by far the biggest Hot Snake community on the Planet! We want to thank all of you who made Venomland the leading Board. We are also very thankful to our Moderators and Admins for years of hard work. Now, it is time to move on. I have been thinking how to proceed and what to do with our beloved board as we reach a size, that we need to make drastic changes to secure the future of our community. As of now, Venomland is hosted by a free (well mostly free) hosting service. That was good for the first years but now we need to find a new way to run our forum. I have spend hundreds of Dollars over the years to keep Venomland up and running, and i have done so with pleasure. Now, we need your help! We need to come up with several thousand dollars for our Venomland 2.0 project, which i frankly cant pay for any longer by myself. So Venomland is asking his Friends and Members for the first time for their financial Support. Please help to keep Venomland alive, and let us move on to a new, better Portal in the Future! Every Dollar is helping us a great deal. I know, its hard times for everyone, but please spare a few Dollar for our community. If you have only 10 Dollars to spare, we are grateful, if it is more, it would be awesome. We are planning to develop a very new Venomland, with real community functions, a forum like you are already loving it and a real (online) Hot Snake Magazin. Also, there will be download areas for scientific papers, Wallpapers and more. Again folks, we can only do that if you all help. Please send me a Private Message if you want to keep Venomland alive, i will provide you with the details on how to donate Money. For now, we can accept money from creditcards via skrill (please google it, its a free service - account-details will be forwarded to you) and paypal. All the best, and for a (hopefully) nice future of our Board. Mario

Gaboons are in africa and inland rainforest climate. Central america is located by the ocean and are more cool and the Lachesis are nocturnal and live most of the time in cool burrows.

Thank you for reminding,I would learn more informations about that.
So on the whole,keeping the Lachesis should be a little more difficult than keeping rattlesnakes, isn't it? Except the temperature & the size of preys, any else need to notice?

Well if you cant provide the right habitat for rattlesnakes they will be difficult to keep as well.
It all comes down to try replicate the enviroment where they live and you are fine.

Yes you are right . Easy or hard,depends on the difference between the local climate and habitat climate.

I have checked some stuff it show that the Lachesis.m distribute in most of Amazon rainforest that's different from the Central america rainforest.Could it mean the southern america bushmasters tolerate the higher temperature?

They live in burrows and logs and never see Sunlight except rare occasions. At the bottom of the rainforest its cooler because of the moist. So max 25-26 centigrades during the dryer season and 20-24 during wet season.
If it gets 28-30 they will regurgitate food and they will inevitibly succumb and die.

Sorry for tangling this issue such a long time. Because here a snake seller wanna sell a L.muta to me. It's strange that he said it has been kept at 30°C since march this year. The snake is still alive!

Another example, we know rhino adder (river jack) lived at the similar temperatures with Lachesis, but I know a person was keeping his rhino adder above 30°C without any cooling equipments in summer for 2 years,the summer of his hometown would last 4 months and sometimes it's near 40°C.He said ventilation is more important than air-condition.

So I am puzzled, whether the animals have more powerful endurance beyond our imagination? But if I decide to keep one,the condition must be right for it. If I cant set the temperature at 24°C steadily I would not buy it.

Thanks for directing the points to me!

Lachesis are unique snakes and gorgeous animals, this is such a pity that they grow endangered, especially the rhombeata subspecies.
