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 Markus , Nice to have someone from South America on the forum. Nice animals too, at first look I though you had Bitis atrops in the first picture as they can look very similar.
Do you do any field trips in you area? would be nice to see some landscapes.

Enjoy you stay

Hi Markus,
Nice to see someone from Brazil here. you have some really nice Bothrops there. as it has been said they are not too easy to find here in any numbers. I have had some very mean Bothrops Asper and a really nice pair of Bothrops Jararaca over the years. A friend of mine has 2 pairs of Bothrops Alternatus, which have only bred once in 4 years, so any tips there would be greatfull. I know they are not Bothrops but if all goes to plan I should have a pair of Lachesis Muta soon.
Some other good news is my Crotalus Mitchelli stefensi has started giving birth tonight so I'll be busy tonight.

Mario thanks, i born in Ulm Germany but i came to Brazil with 4 years old.

Andrew, Bothrops cotiara lives in the most cold areas here in Brazil, special forest the Araucária Forest. In this place, we have the south america pinus the Araucaria angustifolia. In this same forest but diferent states we have Bothrops cotiara and Bothrops fonsecai, but only the Bothrops cotiara resists the snow. Is rare the snow but some times we have snow in these areas in south of Brazil. Now, Bothrops cotiara in danger i was 46 days in this place and nothing, the local young guys dont know this animals. The institutes do not receive this animal. The local guys use the araucaria, and they destroy the forest. This specie will disappear with the destruction of its habitat. Only more 10 years i believe, this specie will be disappeared in the nature.

Sorry guys for my terrible english

The Araucaria
