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: another fatal King Cobra bite   Thu 14 Apr - 18:27

Edy Putu, Bali reptile conservationist, died yesterday from a King Cobra bite.
It's only a couple of days ago since a Indonesian singer performing with King cobras and other snakes has been fatally bitten by Ophiophagus on stage.
Rest in Peace.

King cobras are occasionally reported as having a relatively weak venom which, however, is made up for by the large amount of venom a snake can inject in one bite. The latter is thought to require the cobra to 'hang on' in order to deliver such large venom quantities though. This may be a myth. Looking at the many different LD50s reported for Ophiophagus hannah, one is inclinded to think that there may actually be quite a bit of local variation, and that some local variants of Ophiophagus may have a highly potent venom (in addition to having large quantities of it). So caution is adviced.

A very sad news, Ophiophagus are unique animals but also deadly ones.
I think that only people who practiced for some time stand a chance with kings.
After all the problem isn't just the venom, the danger also lays in the size, the aggressiveness and the speed that this species can deploy in the blink of an eye.
You better have seen plenty of action if you want to deal with it properly but, as this unfortunate accident suggests, being experienced doesn't make you invulnerable.

i knew edy, very sad new when i heard that a couple of days ago.. ill guess, the kings did not appreciate his work much.. may he rest in peace.. we, and the world lost a very enthusiastic conservationist and snake lover...

my sympathies and my love goes out to his family... it should serve as an reminder with what powerful animals we working with.. stay away from fangs people...
