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 everyone,

Do any one of You have experiences with keeping Storeria species in captivity? A friend of mine get a couple of dekayi (they are approx 30+-cm long) and I take care for them for a couple of weeks. 

I only know some basic informations about their housing what the previous owner shared with us. So now i keep them in this way.:

I placed the snakes separately in plastic boxes with a hiding place and water bowl. I use peat as substrate and i keep it wet around the water bowl (every other surface is still dry). I keep them in room temperature which about 25-26C°. I will try to feed them soon with earthworms. 

If anybody have experiences with these snakes please share with us. Every informations are welcome!

Pictures will coming soon! Smile

Hello,

A good friend of mine keeps (and breeds) Storeria dekayi limnetes. they are really interesting snakes that live primarily in wetlands. The terrarium needs to be dry and around the waterbowl you can place moist spagnum moss. In the wild they come out and eat in the morning when the grass is moist from the morning dew. So when you feed them you can spray the spagnum with water so it resembles the moist grass. Than cut op the worms in small pecies and ley them on the spagnum moss. They wil come out and look true the moss for food.
You can also feed small snales without their 'house' or slugs. What also is very important that you sprenckle the pieces of food with calcium powder at least 2 out of 3 times. Yours are 30 cm so those are adult snakes, they dont grow much larger from now on.

Thats how you feed them.. if you have anymore questions feel free to ask me Wink

Hi Arjan,

In connection with feeding i have one more question. As I know collected snales, slugs but earthworms also are often infected with parasites. Is it necessary to freeze the "wild-caught" food items before feeding? 

Can You tell me something about how can we prepare them for breeding? 

Thanks Your help very much!
