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

Great to see that somewhere the vipers are waking up!
I hate to live here up north and always wait the vipers come out from their hibernation "nests"..
Perhaps I'll go outside at the end of next month Razz

Even here in the "south" - I live in southeastern Austria, close to the Slovenian border - there are no reptiles out at the moment. About 2m of snow on most V. berus habitat, V. ammodytes will come out in 5 - 6 weeks if spring will be normal.

So, Sami, don´t mind too much about living in the north.

Best regards,
Rainer

A week ago it was about 6 degrees celsius and cloudy weather. I hoped for a little sun, but it didn't come so I've found nothing.

Yesterday I went out in the field again and the weather was much better. Some clouds, but the sun came thrue from time to time. It was about 9 degrees celsius. I've found 3 adders. Their body temperatures ranged from 17,4 to 19,8 degrees celsius. So close to the optimum.

The snakes looked very well. They weren't skinny at all. Cold winters, like this season in Holland, are good for hibernating adders. They do not lose a lot of weight at such a low metabolism. I'm curious if all snakes we'll inspect comming weeks are better looking as former years too.



Cheers,
Harold

Nice image Harold. This had been a nice cold winter in England so I hope the berus are in good condition this year.

I found my first adders yesterday..

In a place just 750 meters from work, at a spot I´ve seen from my car along the way to work. Decided to take a look, but didn´t expect to actually find anything.

Did find 3 V. berus in 20 minutes, 2 in the same spot and another one just 25 meters from the first ones.

Joy and happiness!!

Here´s a couple of pictures..

Welcome Peter Smile

Two weeks ago I went out to my sites in grey cloudy cold weather and saw eight berus and two natrix. Earlier this week I returned on a glorious sunny day at about 13-14c and saw three berus , very odd
