Tom is right: it's an insulation issue.

Don't dehydrate your herps with a dehumidifier; the problem is that the walls of the herp room are relatively cool, compared to the room temp.

Walls that are cooler than the air create a narrow cool zone next to the wall, and the moisture condenses out of the air. If you have a room dedicated to herps, consider covering the inside with rigid insulation board such as urethane foam or styrofoam. You can cover the insulation with 1/8 inch plywood or Thermoply board if you like. If like me, you live in a cooler region you'll probably save the cost of insulation in one year from energy savings. I'm about to do the same with one of my rooms.
