Thanks for the comments =). Crested geckos were first rediscovered on the Isle of Pines in 1994. However they were also found on the southern part of the main island in 1998. They have also since been found on some of the smaller neighboring islands, although I donít remember which ones, I will have to look them up in my Rhac books. Since the ocean breeze provides most of the moisture I would think that southern GT (northern is very dry), which is only 30 miles wide and the local islands all have the same if not close humidity levels. Either way we cannot provide the constant moist air in captivity. All we can do is make things wet and allow it to evaporate. And itís when things do not evaporate between sprayings that you have problems. I have thought about using a cool mist humidifier in the room that I keep my geckos in. It could work out quite well if rigged properly. However until I have time to experiment, a humidity hide will work just fine.
