 Humidity problem

Well i got my snake a new enclosure 6x2.5x4 and because it is so tall it is hard to heat it so i have to have 2 150 watt bulbs and this gets the humidity way down. I also have astro turf for sub so nothing holds humidity at all. I dont have her in this cage yet so dont worry, but i want to get all the kinks worked out soon.

This is what I would do....You should definitely have an undertank heater on the warm/hidebox side of the tank, it really helps. You should just put a piece of plexiglass underneath the side that you want warm and attatch the heater pad to the plexi...problem solved. As for the humidity, you could just put some spagnum moss under a tupperware/plastic container with a hole cut in it and wet the moss. This will help keep the humidity level up and will offer a place for your redtail to go if it so desires the humidity.

I would sugest tiling your enclosure and put the heat mat in the mortar under the tile.
