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

Its more than worth it... I can asure you. That goes for the indoor exibit, as for the outdoor exibit. Even just the setting of the place and the countryside views a worth the drive up there. Peter, do you still have the Crotalus simus tzabcan? Thats one that especcially got stuck in my memory... Nice pictures

Regards...

Must be a long time ago since your visit, Tom - i had tzabcans in the very early years of my zoo and they died away in 1996 or 1997. I've got them from a mexican zoo in 1994 and unfortunately i haven't been successful in getting them in normal, healthy condition.
regards
Peter

Yes it was a (to) long time ago, the birds where still going on food back then. I think it was in the summer of 1997, I probably still have some pictures of them around here, some place. I went herping in Charinthie each year on my own for several years in the late '90, to observe Vipera ammodytes in the wild, until 1999. Now that you mention it, I saw them only ones. The only other C. s. tzabcan that I've know of, in captivity was right here in Belgium (Antwerp). That one reached atleast 14 years and was truely a monster in size. I still have moving pictures of that one on VHS film.

Regards... Tom.

Outstanding picture of these green jewels, Markus.
It's okay to take pictures at work, but to take better pictures than your boss does is just barefaced *LOL*

I just found this picture of the Green Mamba/Dendroaspis angusticeps. Thank you for posting the most beautiful Green Mamba picture I have ever seen.

Peter Zürcher's Reptile Zoo looks amazing! I like the way it looks so tropical from the outside. And the inside exhibits are wonderful too!
