Hi there:

I can also benefit from your tips if I keep this species in the future. That sounds nearly identical to the car of blind snakes with the moisture line and all. By the way, I recently went into my reptile room at about 5:00 AM an saw one of my Dermophis above ground! It was slowly swaying over the soil and leaf litter, and even swam through my large rock water dish furnished with small resting stones. I got to watch a feeding and was amazed!!! It grabbed a small cricket, and it almost looked like some kind of vestigial constriction!
That is the only way I can describe it. The caecilian twirled around in circles on its back, engulfed the cricket and gaped, as if it were yawning, afterwards. I watched it poke around for awhile, and as the sun came through the window, it quickly and cautiously slid down into its subterranean lair.
