I’m setting up a quarantine tub for a true red-tailed boa and was having humidity troubles.
I have cypress mulch which I dried outside, no misting in the tub (a 32q Sterilite with 10 total pencil sized ventilation holes) and my humidity is at 99%. I live in Utah, a desert averaging 30% humidity in the summer.
I see no condensation inside the tub, so I am worried my Zoo-Med Digital Thermometer & Hygrometer is a dud. Is it possible this is my actual humidity or do I need a new hygrometer?
