yeah, that's what I was getting at. I don't want anyone to get worried and think that my enclosure is a rainforest or something It's just not bone dry (a common term used by monitor keepers for setups encorporating substrates such as sand, or other dry materials). The humidity stays down in the overall enclosure, due to the screen top (a lot of moisture evaporates, just like it's doing to the reptiles themselves), but in places that are covered, it creates a humid area that they can hide in. It's a good, natural setup. Something I kind of stole from monitor keepers and applied to my reptiles.
