When caught, the 15 cm long eel was in a worm hole in a log. Since capture in December 2012, it has been in an aquarium and is now about 21 cm long. It has been fed every two or three days on minced fish, prawn or squid. Des stated that "It is nocturnal but emerges if there is activity in the tank, (other critters feeding)."
