    for rosy boas, what should the humidity be? i have read all about them, and i have yet to seen the humidity. also, its true that they can live in a ten gallon, right? thatd be great, cuz i have an empty ten gallon with a snakes name written alll over it

    ok, i was looking around online some more, and i read somethign that wasnt too clear, but i think it meant that the humidity is suposed to be 60%? anyone know if its true?

    also, i have been hearing to have them in 20gl. but i have also heard a 10gl. would be acurate too, i have a ten gl., and dont know which would be acurate for one.

    I don't knoe exactly what their humidity should be, but I think it should be a LOT lower than 60%

    well, ive found out more on my good friend called Google. they can be housed in a ten gl, but when they are older a 20gl. so iwas just thinking of getting a 20gl right away when i can, and then the snake.

    and they said low humidity.

    but, when he/she is in shed cycle, should i raise the humdity, like other snakes, or should i just leave it at what it is?

    With my Kenyan sand boa (which is needs low humidity like rosy boas) I just give him a humid hide, I don't think you should mist it.

    Considering the type of habitat they live in and everything I have read regarding keeping them dry and with very good ventilation I would go with the humid hide.
