Thanks for the advice, I was not the person who caught the specimen, but I did have some of the original soil which I did my best to reproduce. It was a sandy mix, mostly sand, with a PH of 7.0-7.5. I am maintaining a moisture gradient, the raised platform keeps the soil airated and by keeping a layer of water under the platform plenty of moisture is absorbed by the soil. The Specimen was caught in the shade, so going by that, I have not been keeping him as warm as you have suggested. I think that if I am to supply a temperature gradient of 70-92 that I had better get a twenty long setup instead of a ten gallon. Currently in the ten gallon the temperature gradient is 67 - 82. I believe that he is feeding on earthworms, which has been difficult to verify, without disturbing him to much. I have also offered termites and mealworm pupates.
