Hi- Yes the lower down in the cage, under the tree top, the humidity will be higher. Sounds like everything is working out great! Nice story to, I read it!

:Hi John,

:So far, the humidity in the lower end of his terrarium seems to be about 15% higher than the ambient air. Today, ambient humidity is about 32-33% and it is 47-48% in the middle area of his cage, which is about ideal for a veiled, right?

:The probe is way over on the side of the plants, tho, so the humidity is probably higher when he hides in the ficus or in the chinese plant.

:You were definitely right about that one Powersun being sufficient to light up the whole cage! Plus there is a lot of light that comes in from the skylight during the day, which helps make his cage nice and bright. His basking temps range from 95 to 100F and I often find him basking in the highest area of the cage. I actually had to move the bulb further away from the screen because he is starting to have the beginnings of a thermal burn on the top of his casque! Geez, mebbe making up for lost time???

:At any rate, everything seems to be working out really well. :-)

:Julie, Justin and Frasier.

::I am glad to hear he is enjoying his new cage! He looks like he will have fun in it. Where you able to get the humidity under control? I am getting ready to build 12' of cages for all my guys, hope the cages turn out nice like yours! Thanks for sharing the pics, we always like a good sucess story!

::John
