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: Snakes-their future?   Sun 20 May - 8:34

With the recent passing of yet another fellow herper (Predrag Ristic) & the drama's with his animals that Neven Vrbanic is having to deal with, I was just wondering what arrangements have been made by us for our animals when our time is up. With me my pythons will be donated to the local herp society whereas a few mates will have options on the vens. My wife (who has nothing to do with any animal) is aware of my wishes & i'll have to document this in my will. I will also have to do a letter to the licencing department here as well stating my wishes for the said animals. Curious as to what others have "organized". Cheers.

Interesting issue, Nigel. I have left mine in my will to one or two friends, but I have ZERO faith that my will will be given any credence by the local licensing department. I suspect they would confiscate them if and when they became aware of my passing. I may be doing the department a disservice, but there is no clarity about this, and generally where there is no clarity, the department is ultra "conservative"...

Good topic.

I did start similar discussion in Stefan Thomsons terrarium animal forum, year and half ago. That topic did remind to my head, again when i did read Predrad accident.
Lets face it; all of us gonna die, somebody of us might have to stay reason or another in hospital, etc, etc. Many things might change in our live no matter what we have planned.

Few of us; users of that forum, did talk openly and also maked plan b.

I do know where my room mates can make phone call, if it impossible to me.
I also do know now for whom i can make a phone call, as im also ready to help.

All respect to police, fire department, animal rescue teams, etc. but there is no sense to give possible problem to them.

As Toni said, most of us in that forum have done work to avoid any problems if we aren´t able to work with our animals. On my terrarium rooms door is a list of persons who have enough knowledge and will to move or take care of my snakes ... if I cannot do that myself. If something happen to me ... those guys are only persons who can go to that room - none of my family or public authorities cannot go there before those good guys have done their job there.
Thanks to those guys (Toni etc.) , I can live my life without worries abt what to do when ...
