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

very nice animals

Q.most pictures I've seen of 'Lake Nakuru' B.arietans show them as in your second picture with the terracotta colour in the chevrons and a sandy brown overall colour but some are very yellow with high contrast chevrons as in your first picture do they brighten up as they mature or are they just brighter individuals?

regards Tim Hallam.

They come in all colours from terracotta to bright yellow; however, while males usually stay brightly coloured, females often fade with age. The terracotta arietans is the female.

Hi KLaus, the Boomslang is from Eastern Cape, South Africa and not KZN, i think your supplier is probally from KZN. Never the less stunning snake and Puffadders are fantastic.

Hello Dean, why you can say/see the Boomslang is not from KZN?
The male on the picture looks like one of my from East London...

Hi Micheal to answer your question i never seen that colour phase occur in Natal (KZN), and that specific male shown above is what we catch on reptile calls by the dozens in East London, Stutterheim, Queenstown (Eastern Cape)King Williams Town up to Craddock (Karoo), we probally see anything from 50 - 150 in a season, hope this helps, Season Greetings, Deon.
