Hello all!

Anyone own these? I can't find a reliable care sheet and habitat recommendation. Many people say they are mostly terrestrial and some people say they are half aquatic half land. Any comments?

Terrestrial. Supply a clay plant saucer in the enclosure for water. They will self soak in it. And keep the humidity high. They will succumb if not. You want the enclosure a mix of sphagnum moss, dead leaves, peat and LOTS of cover for them.....
