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,

I didn't keep the Oligodon for a long time. It was for less than a year. I had a captive bred couple (bred by a Dutch guy). I bought them when they were allready 2 years old. Mine were eating (drinking) egg from a bowl. Other specimens from the same clutch were learned to eat mice. I did not try to feed them rodents because they were doing fine on eggs. I did not breed them and I didn't even try. Unfortunately they were burried all the time and very shy when they were finally visible.

Kind regards

Gilian

Hi Peter,

Which species do you keep? The breeder of my animals was selling some Oligodon species a while ago. I can ask him if he still has any available if you are interested.

Do you only feed them rodents? If they are more hungry when fed rodents, wouldn't it be better to feed them with eggs?
Feel free to post some pictures of your animals and enclosures.

Kind regards

Gilian

Hi Gilian,
very nice when you can aske for some aditional Oligodon spec. if the breeder of your still have some for left. When there are some, please send me a PM. Pers. I´ll keep actually O. taeniolatus, O. purpurascens and O. fasciolatus.
I don´t have anny pic´s yet. Sorry.
I prefere to feed rodents, it is much more easyer to feed them, and a little bit more clean!
I got some WC Oligodon from malaysia and the taeniolatus from thailand the feed only eggs. I try to bring them to feed on mice, I hope it works. When not, eggs are ok too. Very easy to get food for them.
Yes, you are right, it looks that when to feeds on mice, the are much more active and ,,hungry´´ and my O. purpurascens are crazy when to get the smel of mices, the bites everything what´s coming in.
