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

Some years ears ago I have received similar speciemens from 10km around Keetmanshoop Namibia.
Also on my trip trough Namibia I found a nice caudalis in that area, and it was very similar to what you have posted here...... but to be honest, your pictures is not the best because we can't see much of the snake.

Maybe we can help you better If you make some more pics (full body shots).

But at the end of the day it's almost impossible to do more then just estimate. That's why I always prefer snakes with the knowledge of the locality.

Many thanks

Marco

Definitely looks like a caudalis from Namibia, I know similar colorforms like this only from Keetmanshoop area. But are you sure it's a clean form and not a mix from different localities ?

Cheers

Yes, 100% sure, but like say a lot of people here (exemple for mister Rob Deans), we can be sure only if you and only yourself pick them directly from their area..... Wink
