I recently acquired a Congo caecilian; and I wanted to share. I purchased a heavy-duty 40 quart Hefty plastic storage bin with latching lid. I drilled 7 holes (3/8") just under the lip of the lid horizontally on the longer sides of the container. A piece of fine window mesh was taped over these with duct tape. I attached a medium sized Zilla heat mat to the outside bottom of the bin; then plugged that into a Zilla habitat thermostat. Temperature is set to 82F. The inside of the bin is filled with a 5" deep layer of CareFresh Pet Bedding. It is heavily moistened with treated tap water; but not so much as it is water logged. The top is covered with a layer of cork bark flats. The caecilian is young; about 7" long and thick as a pencil. I sort out the smaller of bait-shop purchased Red Wigglers and put them in every two weeks.

How is the animal doing? Have you heard of anybody ever breeding these successfully? Where did you get it? Thanks!
