Hi there:

Typhlonectes natans is an excellent species. I have also kept a Typhlonectes compressicauda that was accidently imported. I currently own 1 Typhlonectes natans and 2 Dermophis occidentalis. The terrestrial species should be kept in a 10-20 gallon vivarium, depending on which species you keep. Use the drainage, and place much vivarium planting mix or potting soil without fertilizers atop this. Sprinkle this with leaf litter, and mist daily. Provide a shallow water dish. They do not like light. Maintain a temperature 0f 75-80 degrees farenheit, using a heater if neccesary. Aquatic species can be kept in the same size tank, and require a substrate of gravel, sand or spagum. Also provide floating plants such as hybiscus and pothos to sheild out the light. Give them lots of hiding places and adequate filtration. Foods include termites, ant larvae, small crickets, waxworms, baby roaches or beefheart. I hope this helps.


DAVE
