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

Elapids are my favorites so I guess it makes sense that I like Drymarchon too. Currently I have one pair of Texas Indigo snakes and they are the only nonvenomous snakes that I own. They are about 1 1/2 years old and around 48" long. -Jamie

Hi there!!

Those are goergous! Those snakes are not so common in captivity over here in Europe... And very hard to find too!

Cheers

It makes sense. From side view they looks little like Naja melanoleuca
Beautiful

I don't mean to hijack your thread Jamie but here's an adult I recently came across in the cactus scrub just north of Brownsville.

No problem Jim. That's a nice looking snake! Can you guys keep these in Texas? What is their attitude like when you encounter them in the wild? I really like them. To me they are very elapid-like not only in appearance but also in other ways; especially their feeding response! Man these snakes go crazy when I'm feeding them. The only thing I have that rivals them for a feeding response are Forest cobras. They start huffing, darting around their cages and biting everything they can, but other than that they are calm and easily handle able. My girlfriend thinks it's hilarious when they take a mouse and start rattling their tails at me for fear that I'm going to take their food from them haha. Very neat snakes for sure. -Jamie

No, they are a threatened species and protected by the State of Texas so we can't legally keep them here. It's always a treat to see them in the wild. The ones I've encountered are mild tempered and don't seem to mind being messed with while taking their photo.

Good luck with yours!
Jim
