I don't know much about the Rf species, but I think it helps to have them in a pretty big enclosure. For nesting you'll need a very deep area because the female digs down beyond the length of her back legs...and the soil has to hold its shape and not cave in as she digs. I'll let others tell you about eggs and temperatures, etc. And if you don't get responses send a Conversation Request to N2TORTS or Allegra.
