Hi all,

A friend e-mailed me asking what the proper care for a C.thorelli is...i have an idea, but i dont know any specifics. IF anyone could hook me up with the basics id really appreciate it. Humidity temp, burrower? how to set up its cage, etc.

Hi

Well,,I have a C.Thorelli since 4 months back and IME so far, as a rookie as I am have done this with good results so far with advice from more experienced ppl, and I have had 3 molts and a thriving Thorelli so far.

I made like a 2 inch substrate and at one side of the cage where I put a small pot , halfburied and half showing, (logical:? :) )

My Thorelli made a kinda " burrow" inside the pot with an opening in the front of the pot, and one entrance at the back, inside the pot, like a tunnel going from the back of the pot to the front of it.

What I do is that I mist twice a day ( I live in dry-winter -Michigan), not soaking, on the side of the cage and towards the pot.:)
Temps in the room hover between 65 - 85 and humidity I try to keep in the 70% area, and that's hard here big time winter time, it's probably lower on an average, around 55 - 60, but it has worked so far with misting.

So now I have a 2+ inch M.Earth Tiger that starts to have a temper.

This worked for me.
