    They aren't too hard to find for sale, just depends how much you're willing to spend. What state do you live in?

    Not sure how readily available they are in QLD, but in NSW at least there are a few people breeding them if you're willing to freight.

    There was a bloke on this Forum in Brisbane who was breeding them but his last post I saw on the subject was April 2016.

    Very nice @Nero Egernia (Kayla), second pic looks like you slapped her on the photocopier. LOL Awesome shot and a great perspective. I would say, continue getting carried away.

    That is one beautiful animal @Nero Egernia the iridescence in the first photo is stunning.

    Is the second photo taken by putting the snake on a clear surface and going underneath?

    Thanks guys. I was quite happy with how they turned out. I find that the iridescence appears to be more prominent just after a shed.

    I put Grey on an elevated piece of glass to get the belly shot. Sounds simple enough, but it was timely and a little painful. I had to lie on the concrete floor and then had to wait for him to settle into a nice pose. The back of my head still hurts. I've been meaning to get a belly shot for quite a while because the patterns can be just as intricate and beautiful. Next time I do this I'm going to use a cushion, though.
