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

Hi Niklas,

Do you know if Pakistan populations have any local colour pattern characteristics? I have noticed a few Pakistan individuals with the dorsal row of spots more joined up and lighter "fill" colour on lateral spots...

Hello! I'm still pondering the same thing. Because the larger spots inbetween is the typical recognization for D.siamensis. And collourwise ive never seen any other as green russells. So I understand what you mean, but havent been able to find anything to back up any theory. These are proven russells, the parents are far from siamensis aswell.
But to answer your questions the only thing ive seen that varies is collour. And my russells definatly dont match pakistans more brown/dull looking ones. I would guess its just an individual level of how they come out.

Regards Niklas

Hi John and Niklas

There is a lot of color variation no matter where the animals stem from. However, having kept russelli for many years and from several different locations, I feel that the southern specimen (South India and Sri Lanka) often show a distinct pattern (though not color) of spots compared to the northern ones: Whereas in the northern specimen the dorsal spots have the form of compressed o's that touch each other, producing something like ooooo, the animals from the south frequently have spots in the form of a <>, looking like lance heads, with the sharp tips touching each other (<><><>). Hope I could make myself clear. Try to compare pics of russelli form different locations on the net.
