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

Thank you Peter, for the sake of the formal system of Latin nomenclature we will stay with the species latest "official" designation and not each deviation proposed by well meaning and leading anatomist and systematists, be it Corallus canina , batesi, batesi Gray, etc. i stand corrected to use Corallus caninus.

The Emerald Tree Boa is confused in northern South America with The Two-striped forest pit-viper, Bothriopsis Bilineata,.

Distribution, Amazonian South America and the equatorial forest of Venezuela - Suriname.

Obs. There stands an isolated population in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil from the state of Bahia to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (Campbell et.al). Enclosed i have included pics of a pair of "ultra rare" Atlantic Forest Two striped forest-pitvipers from the fringes of Jacare Pagua, in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, dated on the day of their fortunate discovery 37 meters apart , thought extinct in that area since 1963, this area is in the vicinity of a beach.

This photo is an experiment i performed using temperature inversion and humidity variance using a common shower, to induce breeding in a pair of Corallus caninus, although unorthodox i produced 13 live babies.[img] AM LaMerde -x- BA 091505-1 by Zoobotanicals, on Flickr[/img][img] 2rrut94 by Zoobotanicals, on Flickr[/img]

Beautiful amazon basins!. I think you had mentioned in a previous post (?) about another B. bilineata mimic- that being Xenodon werneri. I have only seen these in pics, but I would think twice before handling one of those.

Yes, your correct that was Xenodon werneri, Micheal and always handle any Xenodon species with care.
Below is one of the specimens of Corallus caninus that i produced from the above experiment at 2 yrs. of age.
