Seems like a good idea...a place in the enclosure where the little guy can get his share of high humidity. So, would this be in the warmer end or cooler end of the tank? Because lately I'm reading that any high humidity should be on the warmer end, so to evaportate nicely. And that high humidity on the cooler end is a no-no, because dampness coldness = respiratory problems. I always thought (because of common sense) that humid burrows (or hiding spots) would be on the cooler side of the enclosure, just as I would think it would be in the wild. If a sulcata would want to retreat from the hot sun, they would go (or dig) a ditch in some bushy spot away from the beaming sun.
