An important part of creating the proper habitat for pet reptiles is maintaining appropriate humidity levels.
WHAT IS HUMIDITY?
Humidity is the amount of water vapor or moisture in the air. For reptiles that are adapted to live in humid or tropical climates, humidity plays a vital role in the health of the skin, eyes, respiratory tract and more.
There are many different ways to create humidity in a reptile habitat, including proper use of substrates, water dishes, waterfalls, foggers, misting, and live terrarium plants. As substrates and décor dry out over time, the humidity level in a habitat will drop.
Zoo Med’s Humidity Plus Silicone Terrarium Cover can be used to slow the drying process and maintain high humidity levels for longer!
