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

She ate him!
After a few days of euphoria ( mating ) I saw today my female in another shape as I wish ...
I hope she will survive it and that I will have some eggs within the next month !

More seriously, a terrible outome for you. Let's hope you get some babies as compensation.

Not really smaller, maybe about 5 cm!
They live together around 3/4 year without problems. Now the show mating behaviour and everything looks good and a day after this...
This species is known to be ophiophag , that was the point I decided to keep them together the whole time and feed them frequently.

Ophiophag does not necessarily mean cannibalistic - really a pity.
I did know that this is critically with O. hannah, some Lampropeltis and Bungarus. But Boiga as cannibalistic snakes was new to me.

I thought all snakes were considered cannibalistic to an extend. Especially after mating as instinct takes over and the mother wants to get protein for the eggs.
I might be totally wrong and I am sure someone will let me know if I am. Wink

That is what I exactly suppose , Greg ( and posted yesterday on a german board ) - I will cross read papers and keep you updated

Raised the temperature a bit and the snake defecated a bit.
