    It's a fine idea. Let us know when you're ready to donate the gecko and run the contest. We'll be happy to host it.

    Believe it or not, GU actually did host a photo contest with a live gecko as the prize for first place. I know because 1) it's the very last thread in this section and 2) I won it (plus the first edition Rhac book).

    Those days were long ago (10 years ago this year) and this community has changed considerably since then. This place was very young then and didn't have such an international crowd. On top of the other considerations that have already been stated, gifting a gecko is a risky thing to do and generally any contests that offer live animals as prizes are frowned upon by keeper communities. There are additional costs involved with taking on an animal, costs which aren't always something a contest winner can handle, making it a risk for the health and well-being of the gecko. It's a great idea in theory, though.

    You need to be specific-like the continental u.s. or the lower 48.

    Another consideration... like prize-wise... could be like a >$25 prize on decor from some website or something. That way there is no life being risked/gambled on. Nor would it have to exclude certain countries/states. Plus it would still provide the 'drive' for some people to participate in a contest.

    I love the idea of this, LadyMalirra is thinking like I am....I'm all for this prize of a pet, or what ever maybe a gift card for a place where we all know they ship gecko's from..if you don't want a gecko u can get pet supplies or whatever....I know there is several online (not always cheap, but their around) And give a gift card for that online store, where you can buy a gecko with the budget given an have it shipped to you...I live in Alaska so i know they can be shipped here. I got mine second hand but was first purchased from the local Petco, which put our mom an pops store out of bizz (i know some folks aren't fans of the pet factory's, but i'm just trying to help with the idea)...Hope it helps, thanks!

    Hmm...I would be willing to donate a gecko, from my own personal collection. I don't know the in's and out's of shipping, but if the "winner" was made responsible for the price of shipping could that work? I really don't know what kind of nightmare shipping to other countries could be, for instance, are there places that require animals to be quarantined? Or are there certain countries that won't allow certain animals in? The more I type the more I see that this may not be such a good idea, hahaha.
