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 is a snake from Costa Rica that came to Holland by accident in a shipment of plants. Doesn't he look nice?

it seems to be hard to find some qualified informations about them.



cheers
Mario

Hello Mario,

Sure:)

I keep this snake at an average temperature of around 28 degrees celsius. It likes to spend its time in the trees and will often hide during daytime. It has only fed on frogs untill so far wich offcourse makes sense ( I have tried lizards, small mice, fish etc). Because it's illegal to even touch any native coldblooded animal in the Netherlands I can only feed frogs from the hobby. So it's an expensive way of keeping snakes Sad I'm trying to get this snake used to feeding on small mice which are sented with defrozen pieces of frog but it won't be easy.

Cheers,

Jelmer

thanks Jelmer!

i am in the happy situation to have always enough frogs here if i need to. we build way back several small ponds and attracted all kind of different frogs and toads. now we only need to get some tad-poles once in a while and raise them, voila, the best food for small viper babies!

thanks for the infos!



cheers
Mario

I find them very easy to take scented frog-scented pinky mice.

What they can not tolerate though, is mice with hair.

That has been my experience:)

theyare lovely snakes, it happened the same thing to me, but the one that came to me was from a fruitcage it was a neonate and was a Leptodeira frenata, but I usually find this ones in the tropical forest where we are doing sme research about amphibian populations in that area, I'll post pictures later, as far as I know the like humid places belive when I sayy that they live in very hot an humid palces, at night is kind of cold and with a lot but a lot of fog you can't see even in front of you, I found them inside tree holes and old cork bark on the trees.
by the way how is this Leptodeira now?? do you have more pics
