What is Humidity?

Lizards Home > Library > Caring and Maintenance
 
In simple terms, humidity is the measure of moisture in the air. As you may have seen by reading through our Lizard Care Sheets, humidity is given in a percentage. Humidity measures the water vapor in the air at a specific temperature. This is compared to the maximum amount of vapor that air could hold at that same temperature.

Warm air holds more water than cold air. When the humidity value is 100%, it means the air is holding all the air it can without creating condensation. If the temperature of air goes down, the relative humidity will go up as cooler air holds less water.

Humidity is a very important factor in the health of pet lizards. Read on and learn more about Controlling Humidity for your pet lizards.
