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: Anyone breed Cerastes vipera?   Sat 27 Sep - 1:06

Hi all,

Has anyone bred Cerastes vipera? I was reading "True Vipers: Natural history....." and it said this species is both oviparous and viviparous and that when laid, eggs hatch within a few hours. Seems odd, but maybe some here have first hand knowledge.

Best,
Vinny

A friend of mine (D. Lasham) bred his C. vipera a few years ago. Recently, his adult pair has come to reside here and I'm going to give them a whirl this year. All I really remember about D's babies were how small they were! I do also recall him saying there wasn't much around the birth area other than a little fluid (I've read the same things you've found too, about them being oviparous/viviparous). This is a large part of my interest in breeding them as well.

I personally believe a lot of published information on Cerastes vipera is confused with hornless forms of Cerastes cerastes and Cerastes gasperetti.

Here's a couple of pictures of one of the Lasham 2006 babies.......and yes, that HUGE water dish is a pop bottle cap........






Hopefully I'll be able to post more baby pictures this summer!

Oh, they were small alright.........I can't remember if they were feeding on their own (pinky legs) or if I was force feeding. It was years ago and the baby I had didn't live very long.

The parents that I had from the baby pictured above were both long term captives and unfortunately expired this past Spring.

Hi

Is the red subtrate "Seramis" ? It seems they like to dig into it :-), will try that with my Cerastes c.

And btw. CB of C. vipera would be great! Good luck with that.

I have read that 'Seramis' is a type of clay. It is safe? In case of ingestion, couldn't it lead to problems due to expansion of the clay within the guts of the snake?

The substrate in the baby photo was ground walnut shell, a fairly good substrate but it does get dusty after a while.
