:what is the proper heat/humidity for a fwc? I love mine but i just want to make sure i heating her enough? Thanks

FWCs are native to South America, and are described as a semi-aquatic species. I keep my adult pair in one of those Apogee Reptariums right now, with a very large water bowl (keep in mind, both snakes are 5'+, and will often use the water bowl together), and they are doing great. I mist them daily, and the Apogee provides excellent ventilation. They soak whenever they need more humidity (about every 2 to 3 days or so), and sheds are perfect. Keep temps somewhere around the low 80s during the day, with a drop to the mid 70s at night. I imagine they are a fairly high humidity snake, though I can't tell you the exact percentage, it probably should somewhere around 70% if you're wanting to control it.
