they really like fruit... My Tank seems to really like bananas. They also like peaches and strawberries and other fleshy fruits.

Some people keep a shallow water dish in the tank, you’ll need enough hides, deep substrate (chemical free compost) to allow for burrowing, sphagnum moss for humidity. In england, you’d need a heat mat, no lighting is necessary, they eat leaf litter so put a layer of that on top of the substrate. Spray often as they need a high humidity.
Hope this helps.

They should be fine for heating. They do rather enjoy a mist of water daily, but do not allow the tank to get too damp. Please learn to type correctly.
