I just got a baby Blue Tongue and actually got one that needs higher humidity than I was expecting. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to keep the humidity higher besides spraying 3-4 times a day? I work evenings 1-10est. I'm trying to find the best fogger or mister without spending a fortune.

I was told from somewhere else it possibly is a kei Blue Tongue which needs 60% to 80% humidity. I can keep 40% to 45% misting in the morning and afternoon(before work) but then when I get home it's down to 20%.

Hi there, do you have moss as a substrate ? I see both moss + paper towel. For my fireskinks I always just pour water on the substrate in the a.m. this usually keeps things nice + humid. About 1/2 -3/4 cup should do the trick.

Well, in the end I had to put top soil,coco husk and moss mix. I didn't want to do that just yet until I moved it to it's permanent enclosure( I still need alittle play sand for that one) but it's been pooping and eating pretty good and paper towels with moss in the hide just wasn't cutting it. With the above mentioned I was able to get it to 50% So, I got a fogger to add a little more to the air humidity. Finally able to get it to 70%.
So much easier with a fire skink ( i have them too) because they only need a ground humidity of 50-60% and the air can be drier.

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
