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

Unfortunately not all snakes are wellkept like Daniel's. Some French stupids are misstreating their "pets"..


Little update: number one got out of it's eggshell, pics of the hatchling will follow later.

Unfortunately only two of six came out... the others died in the eggs, more or less fully developped.

Hope the other two trials will work out better.

First layer was moisty turf, above this a thick layer of gravel (size of grains 5mm) and third layer consisting of sand. The whole at about 27 degrees Celsius during the day, nights at about twenty (getting warmer with the upcoming summer, up to 24 degr.).

Reason unknown...maybe humidity should go down during the last 20 days... maybe temperatures should be higher. I don't know. I'm quite pissed off.

Thanks to the Lord for the two healthy babies. And lets pray for the other two trials.

The first step is done, and the second step will come too. I'm sure.
I hope it for you. Malpolon are fantastic snakes.

best regards Manni

Thx Manfred,

that is the third clutch I got, all different parents ...

First clutch was 2 slugs with hydrocephalus , the second clutch last year looked good and hatched and survived a couple of month but both animals died within one week ...
So I really hope those make it Wink

Hello Fabian and the other readers

Have the same trouble like you: Two hatchlings insignitus, but deformation of body / eyes. Lost two clutches, reason unknown.

Now I still have one clutch of Monspessulanus, that looks fine.....

Friend of mine had a clutch of 4 eggs; 4 babies in good condition that feed well on geckos. He used the same method of incubation as I did (28 degrees, on coconut peat) - but results totally different.

Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad 

After last years succes with the monspessulanus I thought to be on the right way, but now I'm unsure as I was at the beginning..
