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

I'm very fortunate, I've been a househusband for the last 19 years. Before this I was a greenkeeper on a golf course.

When my wife was carrying our first son we both agreed that it would be better if I stayed home. My wife has her own business , a stationary company and always earnt more Ł's than me. She is also the level headed down to earth practical one while I am more floaty and tend to live for the day.

It's been absolutely great! I've raised three children and had plenty of time for fieldherping and keeping exotics.

I finished my diploma in economics in 2007 and started working as a business consultant for a well known international consultancy first in western Germany and since January in the south of Germany. My job ist very stressful but satisfies my as well. I get to know very different but interesting people around the world and earn enough money to afford my passion. If I would ever have the choice to go to the Philippines for sure... I would.

Isn't it? To me it seems quite helpful to have a "friend/enemy-detection" before opening a hot snakes cage.

I am a Biologist (Zoologist) and work on evolution and paleobiology of mammals, specifically Miocene ruminants and equids. I also think that the 'best work' depends on every person, because as Lucas said you can have a not very interesting job that allows to have other things you like in your life... or you can have the satisfaction of having the work you love (like me), with some associated problems (e.g. science is not a very good choice in Spain if you want a stable life...).

Cheers, and as said before, good thread.

hello guys,
by profesion i used to be a chef, working i a few countrys. Coming back home to my country i was not happy
anymore. There aren't enough big hotels in switzerland, and no chance to get a job in there.
After a couple years in industrial production, (medical) i go bored and made my second hobby to my profesion.
Nowadays i ow my little designer furnitureshop. Since i was collecting these stuff for years it was just a step to come.
No i do not plan a reptileshop, the snakes are only for pleasure.
Cheers Rene

I rape and pillage the world's (mainly China) biodiversity for my own personal financial gain and hopefully supply this biodiversity to others interested in enjoying it in their homes.......

So it just means I am an animal trader...... What a Face

Great topic, very diverse group of workers here.
As for me, I am first and foremost a student, studying first to get my degree in zoology then proceeding to veterinary school to pursue a career as an exotic vet.
However my bill paying occupation at the moment is at a petstore. A fairly commercialized chain store where I unfortunately have to deal with corporate annoyances...but it is most certainly better than Mcdonalds.....
