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: Keeping CB vipera berus   Fri 25 Jan - 11:34

Hello all - my name is Stephan Grundy, and I'm new to this forum. I'm chiefly interested in vipera berus, and my first question is: is there anyone here with experience in keeping CB vipera berus? If so, what kind of housing and feeding do they require, and how do you handle their variable day/night and summer/winter temperature variations? Any advice would be much appreciated - actually obtaining and keeping these delightful snakes is a long-term rather than a short-term objective for me, but I want to make sure my plans are going in the right direction from the beginning.

Hello
The follow Link can help you. Sorry it is in German.
You can take a translator. ;-)

Thanks very much, Manni - happily, I read German very well (even if I'm a bit ungrammatical when I speak or write it), so shan't need a translator!

Stephen,

I keep Vipera berus and have spent 40 years studying them in the wild and have a real passion for the species.

They seem to be regarded as a difficult species to maintain in captivity, however provided certain conditions are met they are fairly easy going.

I believe the key is to ensure that you can source true captive bred animals and avoid wild caught.


You are most welcome to telephone me for a chat regarding them.

Good luck

Graeme

Hi Stephan,
If it comes to Berrus not heard anyone held in Poland or in the Czech republic. But remember that Berus is protected and you do not take snakes from the wild. And so I asked a friend from the U.S., breed in captivity Berus?, I mean private farms and that are genetically hoses are clean.
