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

Hello, I am wondering if anyone has seen or heard of an Albino Gaboon Viper (Bitis gabonica) ? I had a friend tell me there were some out there but was not sure where. I thought if there ever were, someone on this forum would know. Thank You Very Much !!

I realy hope not!!!
such a beautyfull snake, it would be a turnoff to see people start treating a snake like Bitis gabonica like a toy, creating all kind of colour morph's (what deffently willl happen if they find a albino B. gabonica)
It's allready to bad it happend to N. kaouthia... Mad
What's wrong with nature's originals...
We are talking about venomous snakes!! animals how deserve a whole lot of respect... and now what, they are not trendy enough????

well, anyway, just my 2 cent's in general about this subject

Chaim,
I must agree with you about the natural beauty in snake and all animals just as GOD made them. Just like corn snakes, there are so many different color morphs it is crazy and it is getting harder just to find a normal ! All in all nothing beats just how pretty a normal corn snake is. But, also I will say this, I am colorblind and how bright some of the albinos are is stunning too, so I like them as well. But I also like melanistics as well too, I tell people since I am colorblind it puts us all on the same level. LOL ! But I heard about some albino gaboons and I would not mind seeing pictures if nothing else. But I hope none of the crazy morphs ever override the natural beauty of these wonderful animals !
Chaim, Thanks for your two cents and I appreciates your thoughts !
