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

Hi.

How cool is that?
What is its temperament like?

Here in Southern Africa [Zim] we have a worm lizard species Zygaspis ferox (Ferocious worm lizard). They enjoy invoking terror and they can tear flesh off of their assailants by doing death rolls!

Hello Jon,

Yes, they are fantastic and mysterious animals.
Don't have much data on their ecology...

abraços Alex.

Hello Ambros,

I believe they are common, because when it rains and the land is flooded, we can find on the surface. I'm living three years in Pernambuco, found some 5-6 specimens .

I don't know if someone from Brazil reproduced in captivity.

The box has newspaper and pot of water. Eating pinks, earthworm, "Wiscas" (cat food).

Regards and thanks for the conversation.

Excuse-me for my English


Um abraço Alex.

Hi Marthinus,

At first moment, to get very angry, raise the head and the tail, open their mouth, are willing to bite. After one time, are accustomed they are calms.
The people here have very afraid of them... and talk: "when they bite, open their mouth only after the thunder ! "

thanks Alex.
