    Does anyone have any humidity readings from the inside off tortoise burrows, specifically sulcatas but any arid species will do. Thanks!

    Well in a 12in deep desert tortoise burrow in my yard it ranged from 60-80% depending on outside temp and the last time I watered the yard.
    In the wild I recorded old burrow humidity at 50-80% again depending on drought season and location of the burrow.

    I don't know about sulcatas.
