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

For some reason one of my C. cerastes thinks she is an eyelash viper. She seems to really enjoy hanging out up in the grape wood; I catch her up there quite often.

Anthony, I've seen a few pics from different people of 'winders found in Creosote bushes down in Riverside county. My guess is that they actually climb them pretty commonly in search of desert iguanas and Uta when whiptails, banded geckos, earless, fringe toed, and other 'land lizards' can't be found...?

This is a juvenile C. horridum. I don't know why, but it spent a lot of time in branches until it grew larger, when it preferred to stay on the ground.

This Crotalus horridum is suffering from a classic case of a personality disorder.
Personality disorders are recongnizable by adolescence, juvenile or neonate snakes and continue throughout most of their adult life.
He or she thinks it's an aboreal Palm Pit-viper and would benefit from psychotherapy lol.
Great pic April !

You are correct Mr. Lineberry , Horridum belongs to the beaded lizard and not the Timber rattlesnake the difference one letter makes eh.

In any case that's probally what April meant some people from different part's of the US have a certain accent and pronounce things a bit differently , thanks for the correction .

Case in point, in an accidental envenomation you would not want to be at a facility and say you got bit or envenomated by an Horridum when it was actually an Horridus should this occur this could lead to the wrong antivenom being applied or in the case of horridum perhaps even none.

Nice Crotalus cerastes BTW.
