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

I was just wondering who all kept porthidium species.I keep a few and love them very much.They seem to be very easy to work with.If they were not so fast and dangerious they would be a great first venomous snake.Once established they do very well.I keep rozei a large group as well as ophomegreys a large group as well .I love them.

Hi Archie

Nice snakes you have there.

I only keep a pair of P. ophryomegas, but if I would get other species I would like to keep them too, really stunning species, especially how they strike.





Best regards

Here's my ophryomegas female.
They are fantastic little snakes, however they seem to suffer from defamation occasionally very much like Echis-species.
Their prices can be very low, at least with ophryomegas.
Porthidium is a must for any lancehead-enthusiast, as well as a good choice for one who want's to keep south-american pitviper without having room and 7 or possibilities to deal with B. asper and kin.
