Controlling Humidity

The humidity in your lizards habitat must be maintained at the levels recommended for your particular species of lizard. Lizards come from all over the world. For example, lizards from a tropical region can't handle humidity levels of a lizard from a desert ecosystem.

The equipment used to measure and monitor the humidity levels is called a hygrometer. You should always have one in your lizards habitat.

If the humidity gets too high, you can lower it by removing damp objects, bowls of water, or any live plants. If the humidity level gets too low, you can increase it by misting the habitat and adding live plants.

Most lizards will require daily mistings, so make sure to look for this when viewing their individual care sheets.
