This widespread species is common in moist, tropical environments. It is a ridiculously good burrower and will either dig or jump about wildly when suddenly exposed to light. Prolific and hardy (if kept moist), it makes an excellent addition to clean-up crews in humid enclosures. If isolated from substrate, they make great feeders if used quickly; prolonged exposure to air will desiccate them.

**Please allow one to two months of preparation time as new colonies are created on an as-needed basis.**
