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

I was very lucky to get hold of a pair of these stunning pythons. These guys are super inquisitive, and are just an absolute pleasure. They have an amazing feeding response! Being mainly reptile feeders in the wild they can get overweight in captivity quite easily because of their rodent diets. Thus these guys will be kept on a careful feeding program, so that they don’t end up overweight and unhealthy. I hope you enjoy my pictures of these amazing pythons!





And the male

Thanks for the kind comments guys.

Gustav, I’m certainly no expert on these in terms of husbandry, but from what I’ve read they seem quite straight forward. They require a hotspot of basking spot that reaches up to 31˚ and a cooler area in the mid twenties. The trick seems to be controlling their diet as they tend to become overweight quite easily. I think I will switch the substrate to something that allows more burrowing l as I think they would appreciate this due to their natural habits. I hope that helps a little.
