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

I thought about such a shelter too, but I guess it would restrict me to much in the ability to move and shoot.

Just took my time to look at the pictures in this topic and from now on i'm speechless...

I get some nice compliments on my pictures, but yours are really awesome!! There's not one picture in here that doesn't speak to me. Although there a few that really stand out, in my opinion...

Thanks for sharing these and lighten my day... Smile

Your durissus-picture is an impressive masterpiece, Guenter, surely one of your best shots!
I'm looking forward to see a print of this on a wall here at the zoo....

Thanks Peter!
Sure I can make You a print - just tell me the size You want, please!

One of my favourite rattlesnakes besides C. durissus is C. horridus:

Haha, maybe we should apply it to the ceiling? Workes fine in many churches, why not in a reptile zoo?

Hi Guenter,

Do you also have pictures of Montivipera? I really like youre pictures! I'm jealous!

I see you use the Canon 5D MII

I want to have that camera since it became available, but the money-tree at my balcony died. Very Happy

Best regards, Johann

Hi Johann!

Well I guess, a very few shots of Montivipera but not really good ones. I have to look.

The Canon 5DII will get a lot cheaper maybe in autumn when the new Canons (5DIII?) will come. BTW a really perfect gear for snake photography!

Best regards,
Guenter

Excellent work again Mr. Leitenbauer!

I have to ask that what lens is used on Rhinoceros Love picture? and in C.horridus shot?

Keep on posting these fantastic photos for us to envy! Smile

Thank You!
The C. horridus shot was done with Canon 5DII and Sigma 150/2.8 Macro.
The B. rhinoceros shot was done with the same camera but a Sigma 8mm fisheye lens through glass at a distance from about 1cm.
