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

Quote Campbell and Lamar's textook, western hemisphere, All the species of Bothriocophias appear to be allopatric with one possible exception-B. hyoprora and B.microphthalmus are mostly elevationally segregated but may narrowly overlap in certain areas along the Amazonian versant of the Andes.
Walter this is something i took from personal observation of these two species in Ecuador, i was extremely impressed with B.hyoprora , jergon-shushupe ...fat boy!

Hi Albert:

In Perú the common name for B micropthalmus and B hyoprora is "Jergon pudridora" for the high necrozating power, and "Perdiz machaco".

B hyoprora is very nice, is pink and fat. I am looking for them, for the antivenom production.

Walter i first observed these snakes at a research center in Ecuador that specializes in production of antivenom , they held the various Bothrops spcs. and i think one B.hyoprora and another two B.microphthalmus zero Bothriopsis said they would pay a premium if i found any @ 20.00 us dollars ea.

Well B. hyoprora are incredible about 40 centimeters(1ft and 8 inches )long or less and about 10 centimeters circumfrence( 5-6 or more inches) thick around and the bone structure to match (wildcaught) huge long head (Toad headed) upturned burnt orange snout and small black dots along the sides remanent of their juvenile pattern .

The biologist in charge Dr. Freire explained to me about their virulent venom, yet this snake could not be coaxed to move an one centimeter , nothing (nada) hard to believe it was alive! all Bothrocophias are spectacular and should be further studied and introduced to professional herpetoculture.
Thanks for posting Walter, very motivational. Albert

Venom Characteristics
Potent hemotoxin, but not well characterized. Venom of this species may be the most toxic of any in this genus. Preliminary studies have indicated that this snake's venom is poorly neutralized by some commercially available antivenoms.

**************
Is this species a common source of snakebite accidents throughout its range? Do victims typically recover?

As you've said, it's a rare snake with a strong venom. It would appear when snakebite accidents do occur, they tend to be exceptionally serious with a real possibility of death as an outcome.
