Its habits are similar to its cousin, aulicus. Rather than wanting a sandy substrate it would probably prefer to have a hide box on a shelf in a cage. In the wild, we found it in rock piles, rocky walls, behind palm tree bark/stems off the ground. First and foremost, geckos are their main prey in the wild.


: Hi,
: In my experience they're very shy snakes and need to be left alone for a while. They are also strictly nocturnal. Ideally, keep the enclosure between 25 and 28 C and use sand in the cage. Also, keep an inverted earthen pot (any flower-pot will do) with a hole for the snake to curl up in. These gusys are pretty tough and i've seen them eat pretty much anything including smaller snakes. try geckos and maybe frogs.
