they are not as fragil to dehydration as most keepers belive they are, 50% to 80% zone is good. dont forget this is a glyding species too much hydration would only weigh them down, thats why they favor dryer nich.

iv kept several locals in similar husbandry, 75f to 130f regular sraying, nothing special other then smaller meals.

I would never ever treat them for parasites, such a delicate lizard with tiny organs, your looking at kidney damage for sure.

the point is lizards are very well adapted to controle parasites if you provid them with thermal choices, only subsaharan parasites can tolerate 44c all other known species die way befor this temperature, so by providing basking your lizards will take care of these without problems.
