No, all my spotting are in the wild. I spotted this one has I was camping around the rainforest in Far north Australia. In fact, I went for a walk in the forest and I had my torch. I spotted his eyes shining :) . So It is a night shoot

Gorgeous! Is this a pet or did you see it at a zoo? They are endemic to Madagascar.
