ultimately, nathan is gonna determine the deadline. it's labelled for october/november...so at the earliest i would guess it to end around the end of november. seeing as nathan is always keeping busy, it might stretch a lil past then.

I really should take the time for a nice photo but seriously, between cleaning bedding, feading, watering, fly duty and checking for eggs, I am all tired out to try for any pictures lately. Maybe next contest I will have an original shot with a better camera too.

Hello Andrew
Ist this really the true color of the Satanic Leaftail Gecko??????
The male is a slate grey color with green spots all over him. it is a 30 second shutter speed photo in near dark conditions, so the little bit of light that is showing is from a flourescent light a ways off. It is an accurate representation of the animal in the lighting conditions....

Yes,

T. steudneri
This pic is more than 20 years old. Had several generations of them, some of them are still around somewhere.

They are easy, just make sure that you have a nice cool period!

When you have different temperatures and some moist parts you can let them hatch in the Terrarium. The adults dont bother them!

They love to sit under the light bulbs, dont they?

Some folks might not know the rules here. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt, Oukan. A "photoshopped" pic won't even make it to the poll. I go through all of the photos before I post the poll. This is supposed to be fun. Many of the photos submitted are outstanding, and this thread has already had over 2000 views! Insane. Good luck to all. I'm glad I don't have to judge the contests.

well, this time around i didnt get a chance to put effort into a photo...and im about to leave for a week, so i dont want the contest to close before i get a submission. the heat really turns up in this contest every next contest. anyhow, heres one of my leftover pics from my last contest photo shoot, since i have no better pics i can find, it must suffice for this round.

BTW, Whodaplatus?

I think your shot is great. It reminds me of some of Mascarino photography (they breed frogs and take some great flower contrast pictures).
