They are found in areas of semi scrub rocky areas where they dig burrows in sandy substrate. It is mostly dry but they can burrow down to where the sand/soil is moist. I would assume like with mine seasonal wetting of soil (2 weeks out of the year) but mostly dry throughout the year. I offer mine water once a week and keep them warm between 75-85 degrees. Hope this helps! I have heard they prey mostly on millipedes....I feed mine roaches/criks.
