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

Some real jewels. Are you keeping them since a long time?
What are your parameters? Any tips for breeding?
Thanks for the pictures!
Regards
Fred

Beautiful animals. I too am interested in more information on these animals. They don't seem to be widely kept despite their spectacular appearance. Are you breeding them?

Hi Travis

in contrast to other large Bitis, B. nasicornis are pretty difficult to keep. Best is when you can get hold of some subadult CBs that are used to captivity. Wild caughts by contrast are even more easily stressed out and succumb to infection. For example, the animal shown at the bottom - this is an Ituri forest locality snake and I had 10 of them; all died except this one, which is now with me for several years. The others are CBs and are somewhat easier. I think the best way to keep them is in drawers - the obvious downside being that you don't see much of them which of course is a pitty given the colors; however, they feel much more secure and generally seem to do better. Another myth is that they like it moist. I think its better to keep them on the dry side. A bit of water sprayed once a week in one side of the enclosure is sufficient. Feeding is no problem; they do well on small freeze-thawed rats or even chicken. However, they defecate only about four times a year. We have not yet bred them but hope to do next year.

Take care,

Klaus
