Yep, it does appear that is what it is. The only problem is I have never seen one in person or heard of one forsale in the US. The only ones that I know of are exspensive and in Japan. It has a large range extending through Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Republic of South Africa, Kenya, Angola, and Tanzania. Because of its large territory so far 3 subspecies are known to exist: Acontias percivali tasmani, Acontias percivali occidentalis, and Acontias percivali percivali. From what I can gather they live in dirt savvanah conditions. Basically Lots of grass which equals to lots of roots which equals to lots of bugs. A tank of 30% or so humidity with lots of dirt and grasses seem like it should work well. An ambient temp of 84 seems reasonable along with a night low of 70. I have also heard rumors that they demonstate parental care and take care of and wach their young for the first few months. THe hot side of the tank should approach to 100 degrees and remember 8 inches of dirt! Thats' what I know and could gather about your pet.
Good luck,
Devlin
