I can't get the humidity level up high enough for my Iguana. She is still very small and for now is living in a 50 gallon aquarium. I know if she is cared for properly this will not last her very long at all but I still need the enviroment correct. Her cool end temp stays at about 78 degrees, her high end temps stay at just under 100 degrees. We have installed a water fall in the cool end and a large rock type water bowl with air pump for bubbles in the warmer end. I was hoping with the high end temps and all the water her environment humidity levels would rise. So far the humidity level is still only at 35. We have been keeping her misted with warm water during the day because of the lack of humidity and for the purpose of her shedding. Is there anything else I can do besides buying a humidifier to raise the humidity levels? I was hoping there would be something to create a humid environment that is more natural in her surroundings instead of a humidifier. I have read I need to re-create a rain forest for her and don't think they are made up of giant humidifiers.
