    This is a Female Anza Borrego Rosy Boa with het albino. She was born late January of this year, I picked her up at the expo today.

    Thanks guys. I am having one issue with her that I cannot solve. How do I lower humidity? It is too warm in my house to burn it off with a high-wattage bulb. Are there any methods you know of to lower my humidity?

    Lots of ventulation will help lower the humidty. Poke/melt more holes in the sides of her bin that will work :)

    I currently have a complete screen top on the enclosure. The problem is the ambiant humidity

    Exactly how is the enclosure set up?

    Right Now she is in a 20 gallon tall. Her custom 38"x15"x18" just needs to be stained and have the silt rocks mastic'ed up. I had her in a 20 long, but switched to a tall so I could use higher wattage bulbs to burn humidity. She has a base of aspen bedding, one hide on the "cool side" and the "hot" 1/3 of the tank is stacked and layed out silt stones and rocks. No watter dish.
    I put her in very close proximity to the air-conditioner and was able to drop humidity to 38-40. This is acceptable, but it is not practical for me to run the AC non-stop for her. (or to keep her on the kitchen table) Left unattended, my humidity is generally in the 65 range, lately closer to 75. I found this ( Amazon.com: Eva-dry Renewable E-333 Wireless Mini Dehumidifer: Health & Personal Care ) called eva-dry that I think I will build into her custom enclosure.

    The enclosure is set up with a heat lamp on the right over a bed of silt rocks that warms the rocks to between 87 and 91 degrees. This takes up almost 1/3 of enclosure. The rest is aspen with a hide on the cool side and rolled up paper towels etc. This is a temporary setup, her 38x18x18 is almost done

    heres a few more, including her first feeding which unfortunately was definately not big enough for her.
