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

I have to agree with the comments, doesnt look like any Namibian cornuta Ive ever seen, and looks like many Namaqualand cornuta Ive seen.
Jean Henrie how can you be so sure if you did not collect the adults yourself?

Easy species to keep, not too hard to breed, and venom only making you wish you were dead.
The perfect venomous pet snake.
I believe these snakes are here to stay like ball pythons.

You are right Rob Wink
You make me have the doubt now...
I buy them to Alfred Werner, and say me that they come from Namibia......so, peurhaps it's not the good location.
So, thanks for your and on the others people interesting comments.
I have to take some female pics (she's most lightly).....
Thanks again for the comments and escuse my categorit answer ! Wink

Hi Walter

They are one of the easiest Bitis to keep I have found over the years. Given enough heat and lowish humidity then these snakes will thrive and breed.
They are hardy and respiratory disease seem to be one of the very few issues with these snakes, if any.

Their temperaments are very very short and their feeding responses are very strong!
Given the first chance they will hang onto your fingers.
The venom is strong enough to cause serious and permanent damage so they are dangerous animals but not really deadly in the true sense.

Thats last pic of JH Pastore does not look South-African to me but what the heck.
An argument for another day.

MH - From which Namibian locale have you seen cornuta which looked like the ones shown here?

I have seen huge variability in SA cornuta and only slight variation in Namibian ones, none of which looked remotely like this one, nor the babies.
Ive seen coastal SA cornuta which look just like this mother.

My opinion is based on my personal experience, if you have evidence showing otherwise Id be very keen to see it.

JHP - What do you mean? Did Alfred say that there were 2 possible fathers? 1 SA and 1 Namibian?

No i would say that there are different bloodline on the male and the female, but i have no more precisions.....
In fact, there is no consangunity, not more. Wink
About the fathers localities, i have no precisions, just fathers are not the same.

In Europe some guys breeding Bitis cornuta every year...
And you´ll find also, but not so often, litters of Atropos, Caudalis and Xeropaga...
