These are kept like most Cordylids, but unlike some these are strict rock dwellers.
Their way of life is entirely dependent on thin rock crevices that lead into deep recesses so most of their enclosure should be covered in slabs with large surface areas.
Each animal should typically have 500 x 500 mm of surface area inside these crevices. (Especially if you have multiple males. In this case add multi-layers)
They are strictly ambush predators and do not forage.
Feed calcium dusted crickets and meal worms and you should be good. Expose to high UVB levels and allow constant access to water.
Keep day-time temp at +- 30 degrees C and night time at +- 15 degrees C.
