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: first record of Sinomicrurus macclellandi on the Philippines?   Thu 5 Feb - 11:46

well, few weeks back, we found this specimen, in the mountains of northern Mindoro, Philippines.

my Identification for it would be Sinomicrurus macclellandi ssp. but to my knowledge, it has never been described from the Philippines so far... the species normally occurs in south east asia, including Taiwan but not in the Philippines.

this specimen lacks the dots between the bands (except one), also seem the bands a bit more wide as in Sinomicrurus m. macclellandi...

as Taiwan and Mindoro have the same geological History, it might be possible to found them here as well... but after such a long period of beeing isolated, it could be also an new ssp. ???

any help would be appreciated... (what do you think Wolfgang?)


(ps.: i am still in PNG and might have difficulties to answer time-near, its always difficult to get my laptop online, but i will answer asap)[i]

Attitude, rather than disposition is more definitive of serpent behavior. From the moment they emerge into this world until they complete their life cycle, their attitude is "Don't tread on me. I am well equipped to defend myself, but content to pass through life unnoticed. I mean no harm to anything or anyone that our creator has not provided as my bill of fare; I am self sustaining and I like it that way, please pass me by." - W.E. Haast
