You need a UV florescent light with Calcium in her diet. Try using TriCal calcium supplement with 5.0 to 8.0 uv florescent bulb, this will allow here body to sinthesize vitamine D3 naturally. Ambient cage temp. should run 75f to 80f, with basking spot of 90f to 95f. She also needs tubes to hide in and a humidity box with moss (for a moist hide). She will also eat fruits (Kiwi, strawberries, cantepole, watermelon, red grapes, banana),some vegetables (corn, brocoli tops, celery leaf, tomato), and pinkies mice once a week. They do not eat their own tails, tails break off and grow back. Sounds under nurished, but alot of other things possible. Since not to many persons have kept or reared them there is not information available to you. I have kept & breed Yellow-throated, Sudan, Giant Madasgacan, Three-lined, Four-lined, and several others so I hope I can help you with my experiences. Being kept alive needs quality of life. If you need more detailed information feel free to contact me and I am glad to offer you details of what has worked for me.
