I'm not familiar with them, either, but also did a search and could find no "care sheets," for captive care. I doubt they are ever, or only rarely kept as a vivarium frog, since they live in rodent burrows for the most part, are nocturnal and seldom seen, so have not attracted much interest as "pets." They aren't of immediate concern on the Red List because of their wide distribution and relative adaptability.

You do have to clean up the yard, do work on the house, and do what you have to do to make it livable, and the yard attractive, of course. But if you don't have to do major bull-dozing, I imagine that just removing the wood and planting a yard isn't going to kill them all, even if it may disturb them a bit, and you will still have them about, especially if you are not into using a lot of pesticides and herbicides. They are opportunists and will still stick around, I think.
