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

Nice Boomslang, do you have any locality info? They do well in spacious caging and seem to enjoy natural light if possible. You may be able to get the female onto rodents by placing dead mice into old bird nests or even scenting the rodents with birds. As I’m sure you know they have an extremely toxic venom and can deliver a bite quite unexpectedly so keep an eye on them.

I keep two pairs from the Cape...

For my 4 it´s the best way using the tong from Midwest... the Gentle Giant.
In the tong they are very calm, no flounder - no stress!
They put the head at the shaft from the tong and waiting what there will come.
It looks like they have no fear.

If I catch a Boomslang with the tong and take her to another cage she goes slow and calm away! MyBoomers getting much more panic if I do it with a hook and the hand at the tail!!!

Using two hooks is to much stress for me and my snakes... Wink
