In Reply to: Suggestions for keeping humidity up in Eastern Indigo's posted by corey13 on April 04, 2003 at 09:03:58:

I keep my Drymarchon in large melamine enclosures and use an ultrasonic humidifier setup to pipe in humidity in cycles during the day. Most of the time I only try to maintain RH at 65%. During shed I keep a 2' X 1' X 6" acrylic box with a 4" hole in the front that I keep damp moss in which they usually immediately go into and increase the humidifier cycles to maintain 75-80% during this period. They never had any shed problems and usually get nice one piece sheds with no retained eyecaps (very important) The humidity box is probably the best and simplest way since they can rub against the moist moss to loosen the skin, etc. I had a local plastic shop fabricate several of the acrylic humidity boxes for about $30.00 each.
