    man how are you finding such tiny bugs for them? I tried keeping some but I could never find anything small enough for them besides termites(which I was NOT going to let in my house).

    I used to have 2 of them and they were pigs! They ate pinhead crickets, fruit flies, waxworms, termites, and small earthworms. They become very tame after a while during feeding but do not swim well and even a shallow dish they cannot get out of can cause a drowning, be careful! They live under rotten logs, so they like moist areas to hide under and come out more at night. I lined my tank with peat moss, fake logs to hide under, and a VERY shallow water dish, the more traction in it the better.

    The young are very hard to feed on springtails and fruit flies are small enough to fit in there mouths.
  9. take a 1 liter bottle fill ~3/4 with moist sand insert preggo cricket then remove her leave in a warm place
