Scientific name is Indostomus paradoxus and I know nothing about them, they occasionally come up at LFS or on importers list.

Maybe This article can help a little bit.

Yes-- Day six. However, it is technically a different species, I. paradoxus, rather than I. crocodilus. Same general care, though.
