Help with Anniella pulchra pulchra

I'm looking for help maintaing the California Legless (Anniella pulchra pulchra) lizard in captivity. My step duaghter found one on her ranch and has since passed it on to me for use in my educational program. I'm pretty sure I've got the environment down - sandy, loamy soil, cooler temps, etc. But need help with feed items. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Personally I would let it go, BUT if you plan on keeping it this is what I found (I know nothing of this creature, so keep in mind that this is only what I found on a web site) They are Invertivores that eat insects, insect larvae, and spiders. And you are right about the habitat.....Sand/dune, Shrubland/chaparral, Woodland - Hardwood, Woodland - Mixed. May forage in leaf litter during the day, emerging on the surface at dusk or at night. Hope I helped a little.

I've had one for a couple of months now. Your set up sounds a lot like mine. I've got it in a 1.5 gallon tank with a couple of inches of sand. I've got a shallow clay saucer as a water bowl. The clay is porus so the sand bellow the bowl stays slightly moist (I read this was important). I've tried small crickets, but it hasn't eaten them. The baby mealworms, and waxworms I've thrown in, have disappeared (the mealworms burrow so, I've checked to soil to make sure they're gone). Mine is also being used for education. If you find out any new info, please post it as I'd like mine to continue to do well.
