If you are planning to keep one as a pet, then you have to create a living place for it. Depending on your species preference, you have to make either an aquatic, semi-aquatic, or land habitat. First, you have to select a strong and sturdy aquarium with a well-fitted lid. For an aquatic habitat, the floor should have 3 inches of aquarium gravel. Place the gravel in a gradual slope. Some aquatic plants should also be placed. Use bottled spring water in the tank, as it is safe for drinking.
