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: Sometimes I visit Vincent troost...   Thu 1 Mar - 2:17

Last weekend I visited Vincent and his wife, as I do quite often. Most of the time I bring my camera with me and shoot a lot of pictures there.
Just...sometimes one of them kicks my butt and tells me to post some of my pictures on the web. Since I'm easily intimidated I follow their orders... What a Face

Crotalus oreganus oreganus (El Sobrante, Contra Coste County, California)











Lasiodora parahybana While shedding



Bothriechis schlegelii













Porthidium ophryomegas



Trimeresurus albolabris





Doubting the next specimen is a true Trimeresurus albolabris due to the dark, almost reddish eyes...



Crotalus cerberus





Eunectus notaeus



Naja annulifera







Bitis arietans



Phoneutria ssp







Naja kaouthia









Naja naja



Agkistrodon contortrix ssp

My camera is a Canon eos 400D and most pictures are shot with my 100mm f2.8 L IS USM. The other pictures are shot with the 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens, Jean-Pierre.

That's a good possibility, Graeme... I'm using this camera for over 4 years, made thousands and thousands of pictures and never have it cleaned... Embarassed
