What is reptile humidity?
Humidity is the presence of water within the air, it’s generally measured in percentage and the average humidity in Britain is between 40% and 60%. However, many reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates come from rainforests and tropical climates, where the humidity can be between 75% and 90%. This means that many of the animals have evolved to be more comfortable at high humidity and may even use high humidity to their advantage - for example, many frogs will intake water by intaking humid air through their skin.
Why should I buy reptile humidity?
Reptile humidity products help to raise the humidity within a terrarium or vivarium. Misters, foggers and drippers help add humidity while analogue and digital hygrometers measure the humidity level in your terrarium or vivarium so you can ensure that it’s at the optimum. By doing this you can ensure your pets are happy, healthy and comfortable.
What are the main types of reptile humidity?
Our reptile humidity range can be further divided into six areas; humidity gauges, foggers, rainmakers, water filters, water sprayers and waterfalls. Humidity gauges show the humidity within an enclosure, similar to a thermometer for temperature. Foggers create a fine mist to raise humidity. Rainmakers recreate monsoon-like conditions to improve humidity by spraying a large amount of water like rain. Water filters take water from an enclosure and run it through filter media to remove any dirt, debris and waste. Water sprayers are spray bottles, used by reptile keepers to moisten air or their pets, particularly after a bad shed. Waterfalls are small water features that create a trickle of clean water, as some reptiles and amphibians won’t drink water unless it is moving to prevent disease.
What should I look for?
The buying of any reptile humidity equipment should always be done with your pet’s needs in mind first and foremost. Be sure to research exactly what your pet needs and build around that. It’s also worth planning out your humidity system and ensuring you have a plan to keep your humidity hardware topped up on water and ready to use.
