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's a species that is such a pleasure to keep, awkward to feed as they were WC and only in captivity since Jan '09, but day old quails do the trick Smile

They are something I dreamed of for years, they are characterful even if they hide all day, I just love them I love you

Java the yellow one first

You've met this guy already, he is of course called Bali Very Happy



When they arrived, this one had a nasty bit of "dry neck" a combination of dysecdysis leaving deformed scales and then retained shed on those areas causing pinched malformed bits, they had sadly been kept bone dry on paper by their first incredibly inexperienced keeper Crying or Very sad
The good news is that given an appropriate environment he shed out the problem quite quickly cheers





This animal is a much better feeder than the yellow and black striped, it's also much fiestier!

Reflecting to the first picture: Do You handle them barehanded? I know the venom is not that strong, are they calm or rather wild?

Hehe. The venom is as strong as every normal Toxin. It is a 3 Finger Toxin called Denmotoxin. The lack of a large amount make the whole think better and the position of the fangs
However, Boiga dendrophila can give nasty bite due to their size
I have published some pics last week on my site

Interesting ... especially for a neurotoxic venom as You write.

Guenter;

Don't worry I expected someone might ask! Smile
These animals were very docile when I first picked them up, they were so stressed out that they made no efforts to react but sat there salivating with rage!!!
The picture was taken immediately after they arrived, the previous owner had had a mite infestation in his collection that was supposedly cleared ( Rolling Eyes ) so I wanted to inspect them very very closely just the first time.

I did not approach or try to feed them for four weeks after their arrival, I was very pleased to see genuine dendrophila attitude when I did come to work with them after this de-stressing period.
The Yellow acts much cooler but likes to suprise attack now and then, while the White is always puffed up and ready to go from the second he see's you.

I handle them only with a mini hook and tail method (they absolutely refuse to submit to hooks so must be kept hold of unless you want to have to catch them from under your furniture...) they are not freehandled and they are not handled for any other purpose than feeding time Smile

As Fabian says, they are to be taken quite seriously, I would be no happier to be bitten badly by one of these than by the Bothriechis at work for instance, I treat them as seriously.

Absloutely beautyful snakes.

My B. d. gemmicinta used to be tame also. I got to handle him without hooks and gloves, but nowdays he's really snapy and I don't like to take chances. Very Happy

I found my white striped male to be much calmer than my yellows, although he did manage to give me a pretty nasty envenomation (that was completely my fault of course). He definitely was the best eater of all the dendros I have had, he took straight to unscented mice like they were his natural prey...
