Well finally someone to trade info with. I never got any replies on the Nic.AL, luckily I have kept her alive long enough for her to teach me. First of all, they don't like humans at all. I've had mine for a year and shes kinda used to me, so please dont mess with it. Give it all kinds of places to hide and preferably plants to cover it as it tries to run around and hunt out of your sight. I dont know exactly how well they swim but dont give it too deep of a water dish, make sure it can get out easily. Food, basically anything that it can fit but mine wont eat any type of worm, i even fed it a small frog once. Its bite is strong for a little guy but not too strong, I only got tagged once. Tropical conditions are best, I found Nic. is basically from approx. 72 degrees to 90 degrees. Humidity is a plus but not exactly needed Ive found. After I had mine for a year I found babies. One had its foot and tail bit off, so momma will eat if hungry. Basically keep it warm at all times, I use day lights and a red night light, give it space, dont expect to see it very often, and it will do fine. Oh yeah, the more space it has to run around, the better. Hope I helped, I can only use the library comp. but I will check in if you need more help.
