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

It's been an unlucky one-fang bite, or even more a sting while handling/fixing the Bitis nasicornis for a treatment.
Everything has been well done, the victim was exemplarily good prepared, had other snake experts soon at hand and emergency documents for the doctors ready.
As far as i know he should be okay - and this accident should remain only as an example how professional it should be managed.
Due to this and the fact that his collection is legal and controlled by authorities, i dont expect any negative impact on snake keepers in Austria or elsewhere.

Cobras - breathtaking beauties!

Concerning his health, he is ok.
I visited him in hospital yesterday, he will probably go home today. A few blisters on the "bitten" finger, a swollen (not really much) hand and arm, pain, that´s it. Maybe he had the luck of his life, it was a big B. nasicornis with full venom-glands (luckily they are still full). He scratched his finger on one of the snake´s fangs (the snake probably even didn´t realize it) while trying to administer some medication.
Don´t ask me what I told him about this action yesterday and there will be more discussion.

The bad thing is that politicians now again call for banning this hobby,... and we now have the same troubles that we could manage to get away from a while ago.

I hope we´ll be able to deal with this again though each time it´s an extremely nerve-consuming stunt and it´s getting harder each time with incidents like this one.
