When lizards require humidity you mist them, right.
But how do you know what the humidity level is, because some lizards require like 30% or 70%.
Is there some sort of humidity reader?

Yup, there are humidity gauges. Digital ones are best, as they are the most accurate, and the dial's tend to be off sometimes.

Those cheap exoterra ones are proven to be 20 degrees off at times, i wouldn't suggest them at all.

Temps and humidty are major factors for herps, and can cause many issues if the slightest bit off. Feeding, stress, Upper respitory infections and so on. Wink

Get a good one, Digital or one from flukers that reads humidty and temps. All the rest are garbage! I's also just a cheap way out for yourself in my opinion, and it's not what's best for us it's whats best for the herp.
