For species requiring higher humidity, I don’t recommend using a heat lamp. An undertank heater (UTH) will work just as well without drying the air as much.

Extra tip with the undertank heaters, put it on the side of the enclosure and not the bottom. While they are not one to really burrow if given cover they may still dig a little out of it which just puts them closer to to much heat. The female I had was fine at average room temps.
