Humidity does matter. It plays an important part on the snakes health.
I know if there is not enough humidity it can affect the snakes shedding and appetite. Im not to sure what happens when u have too much humidity like in your case, but keep an eye on your snake just incase.

i do
i do keep very close eyes on all of the snakes and have a exact database that i enter all the things i notice , feeding shedding and other activities i do with the snake , in .

This lets me see exactly what caused a problem if there is a pronblem that occurs..heheh...see the programmer in me..and it is then easy to predict trends and budget for the food ect ect...

so far all my snakes shed perfectly , except the 2 milks , but they are newborns and it was their first shedding , so i had to help a bit with the tail pieces.

but the humidity does not seem to have an effect on the snakes , aparently the snakes can get lung diseases from too high humidity ....but that i am not sure about..

does anyone have experience with this type of humidity and what happens to the snake at this humidity , case the reason i ask this is wherever i read the humidity ranges from 50-70 , but no one can telll you what happens above ....although everyone knows what happens below..da snake does not shed properly and that can cause majour problems..

happy herping y'all

too high of humidity could cause respitory infection. Becareful with that! It's really a pain in the make sure that the humidity isn't too high!

Good luck and Happy Herping!
