Does anyone have any information on the proper husbandry of the Solomon Island ground skink? (Eugongylus albofasciolatus.)

I don't know much about them, but if you can contact Jordan Russell he could probably be of assistance.

There's very little info out there on them but here's someone's personal experience with them:

And here's a thread (just hatching photos) someone who bred them:

Thank you so much! I did speak to Jim. D (the fellow who hatched them in David's second link) and he has some for sale currently though I believe they are wild caught.
