Old World, Terrestrial burrower
Size: About 5”
Growth Rate: Fast
Natural Habitat: Thailand and Burma. Tropical rain forests.
Housing Needs: Terrestrial burrowing habitat. This species thrives best with high humidity and warmer temps at around 77-85 degrees. The substrate should be kept damp. If you provide a hide, it is possible that this species will use it instead of burrowing, but they will most likely burrow.
Temperament: Some say this is one of the most aggressive species in the hobby. They are very nervous species and are prone to bolting during habitat maintenance and rehousing.
