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

Snake hook ??? Hell ....he is well into his 90's, I guess he's slowing down a bit.
If you saw his hands today , I think you would see why he use's the hook.

As far as I know he is still doing what he does best !

I met Bill for the last time 3 years ago in his new facility in Punta Gorda.In the meantime, he stopped working, as I heard, but is still doing great. Best wishes to him, if anyone will be seeing him..

A newbie question from a newbie ... is regularly taking the venom from snakes a procedure which is some stress for the animals or does this no harm at all?

Cheers,
Guenter

The actual process of having the snake bite through a membrane doesn't appear to stress the snakes we have (probably gives them a little joy), its the initial restraining of the snakes that has the biggest potential to stress and/or injure the animal. Most of our snakes are handled daily and some are on a fortnightly milking roster. Most individuals do get accustomed to being handled in this manner and when performed by an adequately skilled handler, stress is minimal throughout the process.

Cheers
Nathan

I was in Punta Gorda in the year 2009. The snake farm is closed. The buildings and the property are neat. I have met neither Bill nor Nancy. I had contact with Nancy by e-mail later. She says Bill is ok. Here pictures from 2009.
