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

Thats nice Jean-Henry ,
a rare seen species. And a very nice one too. Did you have a pic from above, so that we can see the coloration of this beauty? Headshots are allway nice, but the full snake will be much better.

Very interesting. These horns are incredible. Is there an evolutional and known reason for such horns? Where is the advantage?

I'm no expert it could be a defense against being walked intentionally or not, very useful for a snake that remains buried and also to avoid being eaten by predators easily, i like them Twisted Evil

From Encyclopaedia Britannica:"... horns above each eye, possibly to keep sand from covering the eyes when the snake is buried."
From me: imagine when they are buried sleeping and an animal touch or just walk near any horn...

I could certainly answer for him.
They are from Saudi Arabia. There are 2 pairs, but another friends have some more. If I remember well, in total there are 10 specimens (some are whitish, some are reddish).

you could have a look of some others specimens here:
