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 must show to you my new arrival:) He is absolutely gorgeous. Momentally I bought only male but next time I´ll buy a female. He´s refusing pinky mice so I must feed him with geckos but that´s doesn´t matter. Today he ate one gecko so I´m very happy:)

Very nice...
Will beef heart strips work on these guys?

I would really want Bothrops at some stage - need to finish my mould for terrestrial snakes first before I get a couple of these.

thx all of you.) I´ve never tried beef heart strips so I don´t know. I will feed him some time with geckos and after he will be bigger I´ll try small mice. momentally he is very small about 35-40cm so I won´t stress him with force feeding

You don't have to force beef strips and you can make them long like a gecko. Just warm them in your hand for a few minutes after you have dried off most of the blood. Tease the snake as per normal. I have had allot of success this way.

He is very nice, 35-40cm is big in neonates terms!

bEEF HEART WORKS GREAT TO FORCE FEED AS WELL THE ONLY PROBLEM IS AS THEY ARE GROWING THEY MUST GET SOME CALCIUM SO A PINKY OR GECKO EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE.

Archie - I agree some what - pinkies are mostly water though and to get the little guys going they need protein and calcium. But by the time they really need calcium the neonates are stronger you can give them fuzzies which have higher calcium content. I alternate between pinks and beef heart in the early stages.
Sometimes lizards or gecko's are just not available. Calcium dust also works.

You are correct Brad.The beef heart has just about no fat at all and is a great sorce of protein.Wouldent it be great if all snakes ate fuzzys from the start they are the perfict meal.Damn I can not spell tonight

It would be - I really cant see why a 35-40cm neonates could not nail a fuzzie... I have no experience with these snakes so I am curious.
My purps and Kanburis are small only 8-10cm now thats fun to try and get eating, pinks are just to big even just the heads are to big.

Few feeding pics. Last two or more weeks when I tried feed him with live gecko he´s just killed them but didn´t ate them. So firstly I gave him gecko and then pink mouse and beef heart because I haven´t more pink mice:( So it was combination... Next time it will be only pink mice or some fuzzies i still don´t know. What is better?

Some new pictures of that beast:) He is growing up very well so that´s making me very happy. Now he is getting been more "aggressive" or better is say more active and dangereous but it´s still better than my Urutu lanceheads:)

Very beautiful snake!
Good work.

The rather limited experience I have of lanceheads has shown that convincing does work better than forcing when it comes to feeding.
Sometimes you have to use beef heart, sometimes Hymenochirus frogs, etc.
However, if the snake absolutely refuses to take anything, it is hard to get to work.
Force-feeding seems to stress lanceheads more than other species.
The ones I had to force-feed never recovered, they slowly withered away making the proceedure rather pointless.
I know not the reason, perhaps the specimens I had were incapable to survive in any case because of badly developed intestines or so...
