They key is again water loss, not humidity or wet or mold etc.
If you limit water loss, you simply do not need to add water often. That is, if the snakes are not dehydrated, they do not need to drink. And if water loss is controlled, not much is evaporated out of the water bowl. All things are the same, only less work. If you keep adding water to a cage without lots of ventilation, It gets wet quickly and fungus and mold are a problem. Cure, add less water. Signs, if you have condensation on the glass, humidity is too high.
I have never purchased or made a cage that did not have air leaks. Even sweater boxes. All leak air between the lid and the box, or the gap between glass or between rails or seams, etc. Consider, hognose live not just in burrows, but in dirt like an earthworm. If you put deep soil in your cages, your hogs will do down and stay down for long periods. And they are breathing just fine. Its what they do. That is what they are.
how does this matter? end 2
