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

The various reports are not specific about whether this was a fatality due to snakebite or to (snakebite-associated or unrelated?) heart attack. In light of the apparent speed of deterioration, I would put my bets on the latter.

I'm not sure if many people here knew that, but Luke is a member of our forum.
Sincere condolences to his family and friends,

Now the point has been made that free-handling venomous snakes is stupid.

Tim please, uploading movie clips of free handling king cobras is way more inappropriate than what I wrote. Besides that, what I wrote is absolutely true.

Folks, a fellow venomous keeper has passed away, and has not even been dead for 24 hrs. This is not the time or place for public bickering about handling practices. Let's think of his family and friends and respect their feelings at this time!

Thank you, Wolfgang!
Handling practice can and should be discussed, but definitely not here!
I will delete all posts going that way.
regards
Peter

Agreed. I would hope that when I go people would wait longer than 1 day to start pointing out my mistakes.
