:) Thanks Dave! I've kept ground snakes before. I've always used soil as a substrate at one end and moist vermiculite at the other end with small flat rocks half buried and stacked on each other (small pile). I would recommend using over-head heat instead of heat under the container. They feed readily on small crickets, grubs, etc.. I've never fed them spiders, centipedes or scorpions but I'm sure they eat them in the wild. I've never heard of them eating rodents. I used a small water dish (peanut butter jar lid) that was buried to the rim. Never saw them drink though :)

They are beautiful snakes and come in different color patterns. Good luck with them.
