Looks good, but I have a couple of questions. How many feeders are you giving at each feeding? Is your ReptiSun a T5 and what is the strength of your uvb bulb?

" zoo med l repti sunlight light" Dont know what that is.

"7 AM for two minutes in at 10 PM for two minutes"

Some might need 5-10min in order to start drinking. Ive had chams that ive seen drink 3-4 times in their lives tops, but they still have nice poops.


Curious how you get night time humidity so high, without any misting nor humdifier.

Basking temps look good for a girl.

twice a week feedings + snack sound good for a girl. "eat as much as you want" doesnt work for girls due to egg production.

I misspelled a couple things the reason why I have high humidity is because half the cage wrapped up.
