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: Pairing of Bitis gabonica gabonica   Mon 11 Feb - 16:15

Hello at all

I have a pair of B. gabonica gabonica. These are WC from 2010. They were round about 30cm when i get them on January 2011.
I keep them speratly. Both of them have a length of about ~110cm and a weight >1,3kg.

I have searched the net for some information about breeding B. gabonica but i only found some let's say not concrete articles there.

Maybe some keepers from B. gabonica could help me with their experience.

The first question for me is are they ready to breed or should i wait one more year?

Does B. gabonica gabonica has a special mating season? I read that they didn't have a special season. But a very long gestation time from 9-10 month, is this correct.

As i wrote on top i keep them seperate what would be the safest way to bring them together. The female bites at everything what moves in her cage. So my plan was put the female into the cage of the male which is definitely more calm.

Thanks in advance for your help!

regards Marco

Mabe this could be interesting:

From my own experiences i can report that mating in my specimens took place in September/October and birth in June/July.

By the way: only Bitis gabonica, no subspecies anymore.

Peter

You don't have to be sorry, no big mistake - many people still deal with Bitis gabonica gabonica and Bitis gabonica rhinoceros.
Here's more to read:

Thanks again!
I've recognized that bitis gabonica rhinoceros is now bitis rhinoceros but i didn't know that from bitis gabonica.

It's not easy to get the old names out of your head! ;-)
