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

Gorgeous snakes. I think cyanea are my favourite boiga. When did the juvenile start taking on his own? I have been assisting mine for about 4 months now.

Really hard to say. Did you try a small box and let the rodent (dead) into it for a night?

I keep him in a RUB with a hide, plastic plants and a water bowl. (The same as my dendrophila, who takes on his own all the time). I usually just leave over night. He has never taken.

The behavior can be different from specimen to specimen, I had even some specimen which were forcefed some time, normally they started after a couple of month.
You can scent them with chicken "fat" or only scent of chicks , maybe this will work.

I have got some chicks in the freezer. I will try offering him a leg or scenting like you said. I have a baby dendrophila too and that takes pinkys on its own but does not take the chick leg. They are a strange species, but I love them

I am not sure if a leg will work, but maybe the chicken fat from cooking. Otherwise you can try some pinna, but I am pretty sure that he will start on his own.

Thanks Fabian, I will try this. I was just speaking to my friend and he said they are more likely to take freshly killed rodents as apposed to killed then frozen like the ones I am using. What are peoples experiences of this?

All of my snakes takes easilly frozen rodents, even my Boiga cyanea´s. Sometimes the hour and the technique make the difference!

Make them really angry and they will start to bite, the next step is that they will hold the prey after strike (that can be the difficult part, without exerience), after that do not disturb them!


Finish
