    Hi all,
    I've got my first Ambly arriving later this week. It's being called Stygophrynus berkeleyi by the supplier. Anyone have any special tips for keeping this that would differ from standard Ambly advice?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'd be kind of amazed if you somehow managed to find a supplier for Stygophrynus, but if so I'd be really glad. Do post pics when it shows up.
    I have no extra information for this species, but it probably lives in caves? Just a guess from the latin. All that would mean would be light is even less important and humidity would be ideally even hire. But I'm not sure that all species of Stygophrynus live in caves.

    I kept some Stygophrynus in the past (a different species though), I found them to be extremely fragile. Keep temps warm, high humidity. They prefer food on the small size. I hope you succeed with them.

    What a fascinating creature. I was a little concerned at first as it was a bit sluggish and lethargic but it soon started moving about and exploring. Currently lodged in a crevice in the cork bark and I don't want to disturb him/her after their travel ordeal but pictures soon I promise. I'm very happy that all of its appendages survived the journey.
