    Hey guys my hygrometer finally came! What would be the best side to install? Hot or cold? And what should it read when in shed and it in shed?? I don't want to risk her getting that skin disease.. thanks in advance.

    Also I bought a skull for her enclosure, but it's really sharp on some places I don't want her hurting herself on it.. would send paper work?

    You have the right idea. Sand paper should work. Humidity should stay between 40-60. You can put it in the middle and aim for 50%. Just keep it a distance away from the water bowl, humid hide, and heat lamp as much as possible.
    Humidity should stay the same throughout the shed cycle. However, you might give your humid hide a light misting when you see she's in blue.

    Hi, just in case you don`t already know, place the hygrometer fairly low down and move it to different areas in the enclosure now and again...

    I should have said; the reason for placing the hygrometer low down is because that`s where the snake normally is (genius)!! ;)

    It`s seriously good you`re trying to do your best, keep asking questions!
    Would I be correct in thinking at some point you might want another snake (or lizard) in order to learn even more about reptiles? I started with skinks (small types then Blue tongues) I caught around the neighbourhood and finally to keeping varanids (my personal favourites)...

    It's like old potato chip commercial. No one can eat just one.
    But be careful. New keepers can be so enamored with them and find themselves acquiring more and more to the point it ceases to be fun and becomes a job.

    I thought there was a snake species and one skink species in Ireland (have you tried an extensive search)??? ;)

    I live in the middle of the USA, and supposedly we have a decent amount of reptiles, but I hardly ever see them. Usually just a garter snake here and there, when I go away from the city more I see skinks here and there, and a couple odd lizards. They're very good at hiding! So I can understand if you only have 2 or 3 types of reptiles that you haven't seen them yet.
