Default Hemidactylium scutatum

This was actually a rescue from 2010. I work at a university and one of the classes is a botany class that goes out collecting moss. One of the students brought back lots of sphagnum moss and I got the idea of looking through it for Salamanders. Bingo, got a four-toed Salamander. So I took him and placed him in one of my terrariums that never housed any other vertebrates. Here is a recent picture of its underside. Unfortunately I only see it once every couple of months. This guy just stays underground most of the time.
Its in my office so I never see it at night, maybe thats when its really active?
The new housing I was hoping is a boggy setup, lots of moss and other bog plants. Let me know if this would be ok.
