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

PostSubject: Lampropeltis behaviour   Wed 28 Apr - 3:03

My Lampropeltis zonata pulchra are extremly calm snakes. I won't try but I think nobody could make them angry enough to bite.
But when I feed them (living speckies) - they love alive food much more than warmed frozen mice - everything changes.

I feed them separated, the male is transferred into a small feeding terrarium. He does not seem to be disturbed by that. After the prey was swallowed I usually give him a couple of minutes until I take him back into the big terrarium. When I take him back, he gets extremley nervous and I don't have a clue why - as You know, I am not very experienced.

Is this standard behaviour for kingsnakes or is it some mistake by me?

My Boas don't show that ... I always must be aware of a bite, especially the female Epicrates c. cenchria is really a wild little critter.

Manuel,

i think it would be helpful if you would post at the board your advices regarding Guenter's question, as it could help others a well...

thats for it is a discussion board.... anyway...

Guenter, you could have the same behavior as well by other snakes, after feeding. i always wait one day before i reintroduce them (and others) after they been separated for feeding, as they do pretty much have the smell from their food items stuck on them, especially after you feeding life prey...

in other cases, snakes do want to hide as soon as possible after feeding, like in their natural habitats... it is nothing special for your male to react like that, pretty much normal i would say....


cheers
Mario

Mario, you're right.

I just told Günter some things of my life and that he should spray water on his Lampropeltis a few minutes after feeding to cool them down. Works well with my Morelia viridis.

Regards.
