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

PostSubject: Telescopus beetzi - Beetz Tiger Snake.   Mon 14 Mar - 4:50

One of the more beautiful rear fang snakes here in South Africa.
Not as commonly kept as Telescopus semiamulatus due to the T.beetzi low tolerance to feed on rodents.
This male feeds exclusively on geckos. (Hemidactylus and Lygodactylus )

Distribution is the Northern part of the Western Cape & Northern Cape ( South Africa) as well as Southern Namibia. Its favoured habitat being Karoo.

Please excuse the skin condition it attempted to squeeze itself out in one of it's hides but is due to shed any day soon.










Thanks for Looking,

Tyrone.

What locality did your originate from?
I only ever feed them geckos they do not do well on rodents in my experience.

Fabian you say yours ate crickets!!! Did they take these voluntarily?
That is the first time in my life I am hearing of a Beetz tiger snake eating insects....

I have to look , only 1 cricket is missing and I don´t see how he ate them, so my next try is with a cam! However, I know juveniles of other Telescopus sp. accept insects.
At the moment there is no reactions on crickets, so I will try it next week again. One of my beetzis ate some rodent, but the next time I will use Bioserin.

Fabian are you confident feeding rodents?
In my experience it has been negative.

I am aware of the problems with rodents! But at the moment these snakes have to get weight, so I will feed them with Bioserin and rodents ( but not in the normal way ).
If they will doing well within the next month, I ´ll keep you updated about my methods.
I still have some geckos which I can feed, so there is another possibilty.
