In Reply to: Suggestions for keeping humidity up in Eastern Indigo's posted by corey13 on April 04, 2003 at 09:03:58:
:Hello, just wondering...any ideas will be appreciated. I have a separate room for my new adult 1.1 Eastern Indigo's. How should I keep the humidity up? trying to simulate the weather in Tall. Florida..Any other information on your temps (highs and lows) heat lamps, or undertank pads is great. Thanks for your information
*My animals are housed in 6-7ft cages. I use cypress mulch as a substrate. When a animal gets near to shedding, I just wet down one end of the cage. The cypress will hold moisture for several days allowing for easy sheds with two eye caps!! Humidity boxes can also be used. I just pack them with moist sphagnum, another material which retains moisture well. Large water dishes with good size surface areas for evaportion will also help. As far as heat goes, I just use spot lights mounted at one end of the cage. This allows the animal to select a favored temperature. Normal temps. are in the low to mid 80's at one end and mid to high 70's at the other, providing a temp gradient. Hides are placed in the cool end.
