Your English is great, much better then our Chinese. Which makes me sad.

I think your problem is HEAT. As in, too much. Snakes always use a range of temps, and normally pick cooler temps that are offered on care sheets. They also pick hotter temps as well.

I mention this to point out, what you read is based on AVERAGE in captivity conditions. That work, in the average conditions. But not in exceptional conditions like you have.

About humidity, hognose are bound to humidity. That is, they do not come out of the ground unless their humidity requirements are met.

You must understand, there is a difference between humidity and wetness. Hognose do not like to be WET, but do seek high humidity.

Using a fan on snakes is not a good approach.

What are the temps in your kitchen, in the winter, spring, summer, and fall. Warm in the summer and cool in the winter is good.

In the summer, the average(ambient) temps, should not exceed 85F for long periods. Is your kitchen hotter then 85F?

What temps you need to measure is not room temps, but instead, the temps where the hognose sit, as that can be very different then room air temps. ITs hot there in HK so my bet is, cages against walls are hotter the room temps. So the temps may actually be much hotter then you think? please measure. Best wishs
