...BugNations Best Ever Christmas Competition 2008...
Open to members worldwide with exception of livestock prizes.
You have until the 10th dec to enter this guys this gives me enough time to get prizes to winners in time for xmas :D
And should we have a tiebreak needed i can add a few days


OK here we go lets see if this isn't the best Christmas competition BN's ever seen with some of the best prizes on offer and not all bug related so NO EXCUSES not to enter.
Even if the prize you win isn't something you want you know you can offer it to someone else :D
I have tried to make this one fun as well as needing some effort, The moderators can even enter this one as its been top secret since i started it :wink:
It will be nice to see out 2008 with a lot of entries in this one guys so come on take the time to enter :D


This is in 3 parts but all must be completed.
Part one you need to match the body parts to one of our moderators or admin all of them have a picture here EXCEPT one just to make it a little harder for you :wink:
Its not so hard and you can have fun digging about in picture section if you don't know them right away.
Don't bother clicking the pictures to see what they are saved at you wont find what you want I'm not that silly :wink:
Part two
we have 10 questions which you can find the answers to here on BN if you look about the sections so another reason to dig about and read posts you might of otherwise missed :lol:
Part three
Google them they are not hard at all :P
Sadly we shall have to have a tie break question in which the forum might have to help us decide if we get more than one out right winner.
I need the answers PMed or Emailed to me NOT posted here.
Once you have completed the comp please send me your answers and i will add a list of everyone that's played here on this thread :D
That way we can have no cheating and I'm willing to post what everyone says should you want me to after?
Ok now come on guys make me feel BN's worth putting so much effort in by sharing some of your time joining in!
want to know what you can win?
Here goes
1st prize
Brand new boxed Nokia phone N90 (donated by Felix93)



I have opened this phone to charge and test it is unlocked to all networks and is a stunning phone which to be totally honest everyone here has wanted to steal for past couple months :laugh:
You can go look up specs for it if you wish and your find that not only is it a phone its a excellent camera too so no excuses not to take me some great pictures with it :D
2nd prize
£25 to spend in tarantulabarns shop plus the postage will be added so worth over £30 (donated by me)


3rd prize
a years subs to exotic pets mag (donated by me)


I could keep on with 4th/5th/6th and so on but i wont :wink: you also have the chance to win one or more of the following
( Prizes donated by myself,Felix93 Jimbo and x sarah x,christinew,







2 spiderlings of Psalmopoeus cambridgei (Trinidad Chevron) adult shown in picture (donated by virginia cheeseman)

I entered and I know I won't win, thanks gawd for that. :thumb: But at least I have done it, not even bother to really do the search, but Shaz won't tell me off being lazy. So I am happy with that.

No trophy as prize, what do you expect? :whistle:

MzHunny, give you a clue, the pretties one is me, so pretty easy I think. :laugh:

Oops sounded like i was taking all the credit there :oops:

Me and Jimbo have entered because i didn't know all the questions, so we both did it, sounds a bit cheaty doesn't it, two BN members doing one together :lol:

The last Q's are a tad tricky actually even for google searches :)

so i reckon may have got one or two of those wrong as well as the question which sadly, felix i don't have a new phone to trade you for answers :cry:

Theres only 2 of those pictures that aren't on the board, you just have to look in the right places and also remember the fact they've been cropped and/or zoomed in :)
