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

It's completely stunning. Do you keep there snakes even in the winter ? Do they hibernate there ?

About building the cage:

I use a stainless steel tub on with I we built a wooden frame with glass on three sides. One site is with small net structure.
The top is also partial glas and gaze.

In the ground of the stainless tube we drill some holes, so rainwater can drain.
Filled this uo with some lake stones and forrest soil.

For colder periodes or colder nights we use some polystyrene boxes filled with leaves.

If the winter will get really cold, we will take the boxes( with snakes inside ) out of the cage and store them in the basement of the house. There they can hybernate at temperatures over 5 degrees celsius.

Wow... Very nice! I really want to do the same for years now but I don't think my neighbours will understand and it's impossible to hide.

Cheers, Ro.
