Update: The Steppe Runner contest is now closed. Thanks to all who have entered. Winners will be announced in the November issue of REPTILES.

There’s a new lizard on the scene, and it’s called the steppe runner (Eremias argutas). It’s not very prevalent in the pet industry yet, but don’t be surprised to witness a growing demand for this personable little lizard. Early reports indicate that it makes a great pet.
