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

Hello,
Just to share two photos of my young Montpellier snake, Malpolon monspessulanus. It is said to be somewhere from Spain, but I have no clue... I like the orange belly though:



I love the stand-up thing in these guys. :-)



Best regards,
Maciej

Thank You, Patrick! He is indeed a very charmful snake... Gotta take some new pictures and movies of him hunting, definitely a thing worth watching every time. The sight, as You mentioned, seems to be very well developed within the genus. How do You tell the sex in Malpolon spp?
Take care,
Maciej

Hi there is a strong sexual color dimorphism with malpolon monspessulanus, as adult, but even with young snakes...
female : always, at all age, well definite pure white spot on supralabial, pre ocular.
male: white spot but fade, no clearly defined like female.
As adult: male stronger, far bigger and longer, with a long "black saddle" (never visible with young male, only around 70 / 80 cm long) size :150 /190 cm; color olive to brown with no spot.
female :size 110/130 cm maximum; brown (dark or clear) with alot of pattern, spots (black, yellow, orange.....)
The hemipenis of the male are very small (likes snail horns...really !).
here is some pics (better than words ):
FEMALE

Hi !

Sry for the bump, but is there anyone that breeds Malpolon monspessulanus ?

I got two semi-adult males and would love to get a female or two. Even trade one male for a female.

I have been looking around for some time now without success and is starting to lose hope ;-)

Best Regards
Daniel

Nice specimens!

Are there papers for all specimen necessary?
In Germany the European M. monspessulanus is protected under

Quote :
streng bzw. besonders geschützt nach BNatSchG [BG]
Anhang: b

right?

And other localities?
