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

These babies were born 2 months ago, and still won't eat on their own so I have to force feed them. Mad

what did you try to feed them Gavin? what Temp, Humidity you keeping the babies?

I will keep 1.1 for you no problem. I try to get everything on to pinks! I know they will probably take frogs but I find if I forcefeed for a couple of times on pinks, quite often babies will start taking by themselves and then I dont have to try and switch them over to mice! Had the same problem with the baby Deinagkistrodon Acutus! They love frogs but then dont want to take pinks until much later!
I keep them at about 26 to 28 degrees and humidity is about 80%.

Hi Gavin,

Try it with no Pinkys, Try it with Fuzzy Mice (Mice with a little bit of hair, circa 3 weeks old)
The shown big but some Bothrops sp. like them more as the little pinkys
Regards

I have also tried them with multi mammary mice (Mastumys) not sure of spelling! These are born with hair and are a little bigger than normal mice and I find a lot of baby snakes prefer them to normal mice, but they still wont eat them! They will bite them and just leave them, but that is why you need lots of patience in the snake game!! If it was easy it wouldnt be so interesting!!
Cheers

Hi Mario

I know you must have lots of patience with all the baby Parias and Tropidalaemus you have!!!

Hey Mario
Everything is fine! The Atrox babies are still not eating on their own but have all shed their skin for the third time so they are growing! I will try them again next week and see if any take by themselves! I should have permits soon to ship!
Cheers
Gavin
