Hi Austin, no offense, but didn't you just get your hogs???? like a couple days ago.

Please understand, what folks tell you is important, but the actual doing is more important.

For instance, What is the difference between humidity and wetness. Hognose avoid wetness and seek medium to high humidity. So Dry and humid is good. Do you understand that? most folks don't.

Most folks do not understand the difference, and in this context its important to understand the difference. Wet is a liquid and humidity is a gas.(so to speak, simply put).

If conditions allow the gas to become a liquid, then the cage is wet, that is to be avoided. That occurs with any degree of humidity. For instance how you car window fogs up, humid inside, cold out side, pulls the water out of the air, it creates wetness.

An example, a cage with 60% air humidity, that's heated from the inside, and the rooms cooler, will make the cage wet. 60% is a great normal humidity, except in these conditions. The contact point, the cage walls will draw the humidity out of the air and make water. The higher the humidity, the less the temperature difference needs to be.

Our question should be, is the cage dry or wet, that is whats important with hogs and rosies and many other reptiles.

But your right, the OP most likely does not have to heat the cages and if the house the cages are in, is not so humid that theres water on the walls and floor, then that is fine, I would think any humidity a human can live in(inside a house) is good for a Hognose.
please, you surely are welcome to post on this, just make sure, the OP knows your actual experience level. Best wishes
