I just bought two male S. sthenodactylus. I've only had them for a few days. I haven't been able to get them to eat yet. I've tried really small pinhead crickets, but they just lick them. The pet store where I got them had just got them in that day and didn't know what they were, little alone a thing about their care. I identified what they are and that they come from Israel.The care part I'm not so sure about. I've got them set up individually in plastic shoe boxes. They are on newspaper, and they hide under loose sheets of the paper. They're active and don't show any signs of illness (they are a bit thin, but I think its probably due to being shipped around and neglected more than anything.) I'm looking for any information on this diminutive species.
Especially info on captive care, but I'd also appreciate any natural history info you might have
