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

After a confusing start to the mating season he finally got it right and the female dropped 6 (4.2) healthy babies, no slugs and no stillborns.

The confusion:

The result:









One happy mom...

Looks nice Louis!

Congrats, to the youngsters!
I can remember my first baby C. vipera. I don´t breed them by my self, I bought fresh born ones on a german Reptile Expo, for very cheep money, because the breeder don´t wanna try to feed them, or has not the time for this. I was so happy the day, they feed there fist compl. Pinky by them self... and than the grow up very fast.

I hope you will have succes with them, a real nice and intresting snake.

@Peter, did you scent the pinkies or did they take them just like that ?

They are truly interesting little snakes with lots of personality !

Regards.

Hi Louis,

first I have try to feed them with parts from babymices, but they don´t acceped them. I forcefeed them with legs and so... Then I start to wash the pinkys and after drying I add ,,Lizard Maker´´ from T-Rex. It woks in this case. Not all the time, but with each feeding time more and more. I´m not sure if it was the result with this product or the still trying and trying with washed mices. But after some weeks the grow up, and start to feed non markered mices also. After this, they acceped everthing I gave to them. To use a real Lizard will maby also bring good results? Maby better! But to wash the typical mice smell is very important to me! Some mices are real skunks ;-)
Fingercrossing for yours!

Thanks guys !

@Peter, thanks for the advice, I'll give it a go and see how they do. I'll keep you posted !

@Mats, In the pictures they are feeding on gecko tails. I have bred these before and thought I'd try something new this time (thought it would get them feeding by themselves faster). I'll start trying the "washed" pinkie idea from their next feed onwards.

Kind regards
Louis.

Hi Fabian,
I don´t know, but when you google them, you can find some on shop sites. I´m not sure if this sites are ,,up to date´´ or not!
The C. vipera feeding sesion is now around 10 years ago, mabye longer...
