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 angusticeps has a funny little beauty spot on it... or is it an effect from the camera/light?

I was very often photographing in Peters zoo but I never got the Zamensis ... these little critters always seem to hide. Next time I'll ask Peter to take it out for me. IMHO a very very nice snake.

I always thought this species is active during daylight ...

This is exactly that point you mentioned in your "doing snake shots"- Tutorial:
Quote :
First, be on the move between the terrariums. At one time, one snake will be in a great position, maybe five minutes later another at the other end of the room will be. So keep on looking and moving!


In one month working in the zoo I have seen them maybe four times (including the feeings)? Laughing
These guys are extremely shy and hide most of the time...
This one was lying in this hollow in a branch in front of the glass, so I took my chance to get this shot.

And I agree this is a wonderful spiecies, I love the pattern and coloration, and of course their attitude Razz
