I'm becoming fascinated by these giant trues. I'd love to know about their housing requirements and to see some pics of successful enclosures.

I dont' have a great pic of the whole enclosure, but this is my set up:


The tank is basically a 9 inch cube. There is a little coco-fiber in the bottom with moss on the top to keep up the humidity. There is a little water dish in the corner and a bark chunk for her to hide under. I've only had my female for about 7 months now and she has had 2 viable egg sacs in that set up. She spends most of her time under the bark piece and comes out in the evening and wanders all over the place.
