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

Here are my 1.1 Bitis nasicornis. They are FZ´12/08 from Ghana.



Here is the male already in his cave.


And here the female


This is the first time i am keeping Bitis, but i was looking for a big bottom-dwelling snake for display. I think, this is one of the most beatifull Bitis.

Regards,
Karsten

Hello friends.

Here an short update. Both nasicornis are doing well. They are eating every time without problems. I keep them still separate and spray ones a week warm water into the terrarium. It looks, that they both like it that way. Instead of moisty, dry. Has anyone else experience with keeping nasicornis dry ?

regards,
Karsten

Hi Karsten,
You may want to read this thread, I mentioned an experiment regarding humidity that I carried out years ago. I'm still looking in to this and have some nasicornis dry and others humid
Cheers
Al

Hi Karsten. Im no nasicornis expert but I also keep mine dry with access to drinking water and soak once a week. Im always weary of excessive humidity. Perhaps get Al Hyde's opinion too. I would love to obtain West African nasics such as those. Good luck. Marthinus

Much appreciated coming from you. I hate namedropping but without Gavin's help it wouldnt have happened @ Karsten I have yet to see such nice West African nasicornis here. Most are in really bad shape when they get to SA so maybe my luck will turn in future. Good luck.

@Marthinus:

It was also a little wonder for me, to get such healthy nasicornis.
Because normaly you find them in a very bad shape.
But it seems, you just have to wait long enough. I wish you good luck to find some.

@ Radovan:
Thank you. Maybe our snakes are from the same farm? Brothers and sister. :-)
Do you have only the male ? I really like the coloration of these nasicornis.
Sometimes you can find offers in the I-net, but most of them are really ugly.

So, good luck to everybody and keep you updated.

I wish you good luck. I think, it is hard to find a healthy female from the same region. But never say never. :-)

Hello friends,

here´s a update about my nasicornis. I keep them dry, just ones a week i spray warm water. Feeding ones a week. Both are doing verry well.





Now it´s time to build their cage. Or is it better to keep them seperate ?

So, they are now 2 years old. Still doing very good. They are growing and growing and growing. Just awesome animals. The female is very quiet. I can do work inside the terrarium without having her puff, but he is more vervous. I just enter the the room and he says hello with a puff. cheers
