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

Hi Tom.

Those specific Bitis atropos specimens have an interesting story behind them.
They are from Limpopo in an area called Graskop so they are not Cape bergadders which differ visually and POSSIBLY in morphology, so these are Limpopo bergadders.
- I see the topic name was then changed from Cape mountain adders to Bergadders.

These snakes occur in areas which can become humid and green during the rainy season in summer. (sub-tropical, not arid habitats like many other small Bitis).

The mountains there are often covered in mist so I suggest you mist your snakes every now and then without creating a constant high humidity which can cause problems.
You can confirm this by noting how much water these snakes drink when kept at constant low humidities.

All the best and good luck.

Thanks for your nice comment´s.

Here the male after shedding.



@dave
When you have stable snakes and pays attention to a few parameter it is not so difficult to keep them.
I think it is more difficult to breed them.

Awesome snakes. I hope they breed because they really are quite beautiful. It would be cool to see some babies.
