Hi all. I recently purchased a Stimson python and after doing some research, I was under the impression that the humidity in its enclosure should be less than 50%. Is this correct?

For some reason, the humidity in the enclosure has spiked and is now sitting at around 63%. When I first had my snake in the enclosure it was sitting at around 35%-40%. I haven't changed anything in the past few days so I don't know why the humidity has risen.

I have increased the ventilation in the tank and switched to a smaller water bowl, but I am still getting readings at around 60%. The only thing I can think of that is attributing to the change is a change in the weather. It has been slightly more humid where I live, but I make sure to open the windows near my enclosure.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

60% is good

Too low (below 50% and you will have shedding issues)

too high (80+) and you will get scale problems
