Hi,

Sci Name: Babycurus jacksoni
Temps: Around 78-82F will be fine
Humidity: Around 70%
Adult Size: 3.5"
Venom: 2-3 out of 5, not too potent but will hurt quite a bit. Take a look at the sting reports if you like.


Since it is so small I wouldnt keep a waterdish with it yet, just keep the sub moist and mist the walls every so often so it can get a drink.


Cheers,
Ryan
