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

Here's a few pictures of some of my Oreophis porphyraceus coxi
An old shot of a juvie female


An adult male


And after a year, this


lead to this


They are supposed to hatch in 20 days, or so.

I have 2,2 adults, but only one of the females gave eggs this year (of course the smallest female Rolling Eyes )

They are fantastic snakes, indeed! And very easy to keep and breed.

They require a humid enviroment, with a good substrat, which allows them to burrow. Ventilation must be good, to minimize the growth of fungi and mold.
They should be kept no warmer than 25°C. I have been told, that temperatures above 28°C can be fatal to them. I keep mine, in my snakeroom, in cages on the floor with no additional heating. The daytime temp is 24° and nighttime is 20°.
I hibernate my coxis over a 3 month period. I slowly lower the temperature to 10°, over 3 weeks, and keep them here, for 6 weeks. The I slowly raise the temperature, again over 3 weeks.

Baby usually feeds well on live mice pinkies. My adults feeds on everything. Chicks, mice, small rats both live, prekilled and thawed.
The females can sometimes be bred after 18 months, but to avoid egg-binding I wait untill they are 24 months. The males will be ready in 14-18 months.
I had feeding problems with my first clutch. None of the 5 babies were eating. But once I switched from Mastomys natalensis, to "common" white mice, they all ate, without problems. And so did the clutch I hatched 2 weeks ago Very Happy

A friend of mine kept them on newspaper, with a moist hide, and that worked out well, for around 6 months, then the female died. Whether it's due to the way he kept them, or just bad luck, I dont know, but I dont want to take the chance.

If you are interested I have babies for sale. If you can convince Mario to let go of his adult Boiga d. divergens, i'm always open for a trade lol!
