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

PostSubject: various arthropod pictures   Fri 9 Dec - 9:19

As I had the first closer contact with tarantulas, a few years ago, I was fascinated by them and their kind of movements and behavior...
After reading some literature and hours of talking to keepers, I became interested in labidognath spiders and other arthropods too.
Finally, I am overwhelmed by the huge diversity and the countless tricks and strategies in the struggle for survival, of this phylum.
IMO nobody should call them "ugly", "bizarre" perhaps, but not "ugly" Laughing
What do you guys think?

Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens



Holothele incei



Linothele megatheloides (Dipluridae), with huge spinnerets for making strong webs...



Latrodectus hasselti



And the last for today,
the sting of a Parabuthus transvalicus



I hope you enjoy my shots and share some of your pictures of these often underrated animals Wink

Cool pics mate! I like the first the most.

I've kept some a couple of years but I want more movement in my cages but some are just stunning for sure.
Also the reason I like Elapids the most of the venomous snakes.

Cheers, Ro.

Agree with that, and this is an "advantage" of labidognath spiders. They do not live as long as tarantulas, so they grow faster und one has more to observe in less time...


Concerning the pics I want to add, that they are made with a Micro Nikkor 40mm lens.

Another picture of Latrodectus hasselti, a female with egg sac


and the youngsters... (the thing on the right side is a part of an 1€cent-coin)




"giant japanese funnel-web spider"
Macrothele gigas (Hexathelidae), quite pissed off Twisted Evil
