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

Very nice! The set up looks great. Even though we have them all over here they are still among my favorite. When we get call outs for the we sometimes find some nasty ones that will spread a hood almost like a cobra. LOL

That animal's got issues. Every time I pay a visit, it starts to puff so loud, it seem to explode any second.
Got 2.1 arietans, so even in Finland it seems that they're all over the place hahaha

From my childhood these have been my favorite.
The striking speed and the unpredictability stays unbelievable no matter what other specie of snake you observe....

The set up does justice to the nice snake!

From my point of view, this arietans is not from tanzania. thats why the colours aren´t shiny enough. especially for a male.

Ain't shure what you mean with shiny colors, if not refering to the more yellow colorizing thats often found on the ones from Namibia,
still this CB has always been told to been originated locally from Tanzania, don't know, maybe you know better/are right.
Still i'm wondering what else than this shining was the one that caused you're presuming?

... that started to bother me now (maybe rather irritate), so would be nice if some one could verify he's locality by country, and if another one than Tanzania then why do you believe so. Anyone?

Yes they are fast when they strike, these are the ones not to underrate, ever, but great snakes overall anyway.
