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: Bitis arietans (Lake Nakuru) videos   Thu 19 Jan - 7:00

I have recently made a number of videos of my young puff adders (bred by Al Hyde) striking. The hope is to get a good idea of how far and fast they can go. Here are a few of the videos I have made.



And the same video slowed.


And another. The grid is marked with 5mm squares and my hand is not in the glove.


Slowed down.


And a feeding video.


Slowed.


Thanks,
David.

Fantastic work David. I especially like the second video where you showed strength, range and speed of attack Bitis arietans. The strength to which this snake attacks is impressive.

Great job mate Wink

We now have the parents of the juvenile snakes in those clips in Bangor. Having just cleaned them out, I can verify that the adults are just as sweet-tempered as the juveniles, and with the body weight involved, it's quite an impressive display.

It is really amazing that fast strike and the range that is achieved. For me is it already quite fast on the slowed video Shocked That is truly impressive.
Now I can easier imagine why the most fatal bites from venomous snakes in South Africa comes from this snake.
Thanks for the informative videos.

Thanks for the kind words. If I am able to capture any better footage I will update this topic. I also look forward to seeing some photos of the parents!

Thanks,
David.

I have a couple of "Lake - Nakuru" Bitis arietans CB 09 (End), and while they were young, were also very aggressive...
However, with one year of age are starting to calm down, and are now very peaceful, and generally never not respond
to harassment with blowing or biting attempt...

Thanks for that Predrag. It seems that the ones I have are from angry stock! Time will tell if they calm down. Here is a video from last night of a very hungry puff adder.



Thanks,
David.
