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: My clelia bicolor   Fri 5 Oct - 1:38

2 weeks ago on sunday, i was walking around a reptile expo in Antwerp and it was there i fell in love...
What i saw in between the cornsnakes was this beautiful Clelia bicolor, i just had to have it !!

So i proudly present, my Clelia bicolor:





I've got it in a 80x30x30 (cm) vivarium with one hotspot (18W lightbulb) on one side of the vivarium. i've put in a good layer of earth seeing as people say they like to dig (not mine so far). Furhtermore i've decorated the lot with some hollow cork aswell as some mosses/grasses. I also put in a big waterbowl. So my humidity is reasonably high but that's also because there's a lot of moist left in the earthlayer. My temps during the day on the hotspot: 33 °C and the cold spot: 22°C. At night: 30-18. I know the temps are a bit high but i can't get them lower and these high temperatures are also just on one specific point in the vivarium so i think that's not a big issue (i hope).




I have not yet done a fecal sample seeing as though i just got here (or him) to eat. I started out trying with a house gecko, but no such luck. Then i managed to get myself a baby cornsnake but again, no luck. Then i tought, why not try the easy tactic. So today i tried a frozen pinky on tongs... She (again, or he) immediatly showed interest but didn't grab on to it (same pattern as with all the other food-items i tried). So i then just put the pinky in front of her hollow cave and she didn't hesitate to start eating it !! cheers. Next point on the agenda, a fecal exam Wink.

Here are some other pictures, i apologize for the bad quality of most.

I sadly have to report that the day after she ate, i found her dead in the enclosure. She probably hadn't eaten in a while and carried some parasites, so the pressure of that little pink was just to much...

I'm really down, but it's a process of trial and error.

As far as temperament, she never showed any sign of aggressivness, very easy-going snake.

I am expecting also that the snake didn´t eat for a while. ( body is very triangular )
