Hi:

I havenīt keep iguanas myself, but for what I have read, maybe tour high-end
temp is on the "high" side, iguanas must have access to a basking area that remains
between 88-95° F (31-35° C) at least 12 hours a day. The daytime gradient should range
between 76-88° F (24-31° C), with the nighttime up to 84° F (28.8° C).
Maybe that could explain why even with the waterfall you donīt have the right levels of humidity.
You donīt mention the substrate you use in your set-up and the kind of substrate along with other things like
if you use live plants in your set-up can play an important role in keeping the humidity in place.

Rainforest doesnīt have giant humidifiers, but have heavy precipitations and that work like having a giant
humidifier in the rainforest :)

Anyway have you checked the Melissa Kaplan Resource about Green Igunas???
If you havenīt you should do it ASAP.

Good luck,

Arioco
