    ok guys the heat i think is doing good for now but my humidity is like 30 or 40 i spray in the morning and at night but it goes down so fast. This one is for a nile monitor all he does is dig holes and hide right now. how can i keep it a the humidity a nile needs

    What is your substrate? You could always add a live plant or two, planted or in a pot. Your monitor might like the cover and it would help with humidity. Is there any way you can post a photo of the enclosure? I might be able to suggest plants better.

    I"m guessing that substrate does nothing to hold in the humidity. Funny that its growing in seeds with the topsoil.

    I know nothing about the animal. What is its natural habitat?

    Did you say something about now you have a Nile monitor?
    Also what are you using to measure the temperatures? I'd get an additional reading from another source to make sure it's working properly.

    That caught me off guard as well!
    I thought we had been talking about a savanna.
