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

First off, I did not watch the link so perhaps I have no right to comment. But on the other hand, supplying a link to it will only get more people to watch, get the link more "hits" and encourage the makers to produce more such trash.

Like the guys that knock on my door trying to sell me religion, ignore it and eventually it goes away.

I think Crocodylus porosus is next in the ring, how about Acco, the big 17 footer at Australia Zoo?

Seriously, this is wrong. I feel so sorry for the poor gator. Sad

I could've swarn that David Weathers is in that video, for a brief couple of seconds.

These are also not adult alligators.
Croc shows are very usual in Thailand too, done with saltwater crocs, siamese crocs and hybrids between both species. And, to be honest, the shows performed at Australia Zoo and places like that are also neither educational nor are these for enrichment purposes : Its pure commercial, thats all.

I'd imagine you can get education purposes at Australia Zoo, just by the demonstration of the speed, and agression of the crocs.

You are right as usual Ralf... commercialized conservation work, thats what i call it...
Suddenly, even big Organisations (no names mentioned) are just pure moneymaking machines too.... making a bug on the back of endangered animals, shame on them... we both got our experiences with it, dont we?


cheers
