You don’t need a huge container. I can’t see how big he is cause your picture’s not working. But,you could place him in a 10gallon terrarium.Apply Plants,Tree bark,and things to climb on. For feeding you could place a flying insect or a mealworm,cricket or whatever.

Feed it any type of bug and keep it in a small container with safe foliage.
