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

That´s a great breeding success!!
I red that the incubation period is up to 300 days - seems really long to me.

Please let us know some more informations about V. olivaceus. Always nice and important to get first hand informations!

By the way: You don´t have Varanus mabitang at your zoo? Dont you?

All the best!

hi Rene,

no, we do not have Varanus mabitang at the Zoo... i hav´nt even seen one until now...
last year, we was discussing with the government if it makes sense to collect a small breeding group from the wild and start a conservation breeding program.. somehow, we dont get trough with it.. it would be very important - but we cant raise funds for it....

cheers
Mario

we do have breeding of Varanus olivaceus done in the past, actually, we breed this species since 4 years in a row.



here we have some eggs from 2004




the babies




one close up




one of the females



and another one




the Butaan is one of the most fascinating monitor Lizards i came across with so far.. we keep lots of Monitors here, but the V.olivaceus is very special to me and all of us.




that is an adult Varanus cumingi male, this guys can be a handful - and you think Ophiophagus hannah is dangerous?! think again!



cheers
Mario

Nice pictures Mario!
Next to our venomous snakes, monitor lizards are my all time favorites.

I recognized that you write Varanus cumingi as it is not longer a salvator subspecies?! Had there beeen a change in the salvator taxonomy?

I must agree with you - Varanus olivaceus is fascinating and i´m happy about your breeding success! I hope you get a change to breed the Mabitang in the near future too.

Best wishes!
René (who needs more space for some nice Varanus ssp. Rolling Eyes )

There have been quite some changes in the Varanus salvator-complex. The first time I heard about it was at a presentation at the DGHT-Jahrestagung in 2004. But since monitors are only of peripheral interest for me I can't give you a real update....

yes René, there has been a change in their systematic recently... let me take a look, i have the paper here somewhere, ill scan it and send it to you..
all former Varanus salvator ssp. in the philippines are recognized as full species now.

we lost Varanus salvator on our specieslist in the Philippines, we won Varanus nucalis, Varanus marmoratus, Varanus cumingi... the status of marmoratus is still confusng as the author have not had enough samples for mit. DNA .. their might be a Varanus marmoratus complex with different subspecies yet to be discovered... Bennett is also dicribing a new philipinosaurus species right now, that would be number 3 besides the olivaceus and mabitang, well - i would not be surprised, to find some more new Varanid sp. / ssp. in the philippines in the not so far Future.




cheers
Mario

This significant act of conservation of Varanus olivaceus by Mario Lutz is what brought Venom land to the attention of the world.

Varanus olivaceus, was thought to be extinct !.


Amazing and truly serious,

Albert.
