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

A 'red vine snake' (Siphlophis {Tripanurgos} compressus) from Suriname. Possibly one of the prettiest red-eyed tricolor snakes from the Neotropics. I no longer have this particular snake in my collection , but the two that I had were strictly lizard/frog feeders. Very timid arboreal snakes that, like many thin bodied tropical snakes, need a certain amount of moisture/hydration within the husbandry scheme or will quickly dehydrate. And, like snakes of another thin bodied arboreal genus (Imantodes), Siphlophis has enlarged vertebral scales - possibly an adaptation or result from being light-bodied and arboreal. A friend of mine had some Siphlophis cervinus (Liana snakes) which laid 1-2 clutches of eggs.

Mats

My snakes only ate lizards and frogs but refused mice. They are very beautiful mild mannered snakes that are only occasionally imported.

Beautiful snakes! I think Dan Scolora (DTS) was able to reproduce these in captivity.

Not to take anything away from Dan, but it was my understanding that he imported a gravid female....living where he does, he has the opportunity to cherrypick as well as directly import snakes that eventually produce young from already gravid females (e.g. Thmanodynastes, Oxybelis, Helicops, Oxyrhopus etc).

Ah, I did not know that. I knew he has handpicked many, but didn't know it was already gravid female that had produced.

While working in Suriname we fed these(Siphlophis compressus) Iguana Iguana, they do well in captivity although i never kept any for any length of time but the names you mentioned sound familiar from a time ago, so they must thrive, yes these ,Siphlophis compressus, Xenodon werneri and believe it or not a species very similar to Rhinobothryum bovali or even lentiginosum(Suriname), that were also collected near the local of the Alcoa alluminum plant in Suriname , and other " rear fanged "snakes , all went to the same person hear in Florida , these were incidental takes or finds from the "rare" frogs days.

Addt'l. Xenodon werneri, are full of piss and vigor as most Xenodons and feed on toads, nice snakes !
