I have one FBN in my collection at the moment. I had another but it died for some reason, after keeping it for 6+ years! :(
I keep it in a 10 gallon aqua-terrarium but for some reason it totally prefers staying on the land area, where it hides under some flat slate rocks and clumps of sphagnum moss. It seems to be totally obsessed with small crickets, which I feed to it by jiggling them on a broomstraw, and then it snaps them up.

I appreciate it, but that wasn’t really my question.

I’m telling you this because in my experience, they really do seem to prefer live food, especially crickets and maybe small earthworms.

So they just won’t eat frozen bloodworms?
