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: Lycodon capucinus eggs   Mon 21 Apr - 14:23

Yesterday in the morning, if I got into our Snake-exhibit, i saw our Lycodon capucinus laid eggs.
She laid all in all only 2 eggs. But she is a young lady, who knows what´s gonna happen next time?

thats the first time we have had eggs for this particular small species. we have seen lots of babies of them, but never hatched them before on our own.

Here you got a picture of the eggs.



Hopefully the babies are not that small.
so we won't have so much problem feeding them!

Benny,

Why the hell didn't we check that L. capucinus female when we caught it under my bed??? (my wife was jumping all over the house, freaking out!) I never thought it was gravid. But anyway, glad those 3 eggs are now being incubated artificially... in humus, of course.

And don't you worry about how to get food items for the hatchlings. I've reared wolf snake babies before with small crickets. We'll try it again this time.

Here's another interesting species of wolf snake endemic to Luzon, Philippines. It's called Müller's wolf snake (Lycodon mülleri ) ... arboreal and uncommon in its range.

Here's a pic to share:

Congrats Benjamin.

What do you feed them?

I got hold of a few Lycodon effraenis last year (WC of course), but they refused to feed on anything (tried mice, house gekkos and small snakes) and after only two months they died.

Hey Jakob,

normally we feed our Lycodons house gekkos.
if they do not like to any gekkos then we try to feed them small crickets.
