    She does not get directly misted (insert collective gasp here). Here's why though: the room she's kept in is warm and humid. It has a 75g and a 55g aquarium, both screen tops (turtles). With the humidity the 27 cresteds are kept at, plus the natural tank evaporation of the turtle tanks, her tank stays nicely humid.

    *GASP*

    Haha just kidding. Yeah I directly mist my guy but whenever he even sees the spray bottle he gets super P.O.ed.

    Also, Indy, what RTB forums do you read? Just wondering so I could go scan them when I have nothing else to do. Thanks.

    Great forum, IMHO.

    I think I have all of about...8 posts there in a year of belonging. Pangea is definitely my home.

    BTW - any new pics of your guy? I was just thinking about him/you the other day, wondering how everything with him was going.

    Thanks for asking!

    Hes doing great actually. I don't know if you remember but I had a bit of an eating issue when I first brought him home. He went about a month or just under a month without eating then finally got back on track. I found that its easiest for me to take the F/T mouse and put it on top of this flat hide he has, throw it on there right before I go to bed (also his ceramic heater is right above that hide) and then in the morning its never there.

    So everythings been great with him. I'll have to get some new pictures of him up soon. I haven't really taken any in quite a while.

    Yes, I definitely remember the feeding issues. Glad to hear he's eating fine for you now.

    This is probably something I should honestly keep track of, though she doesn't have issues so it's never been necessary. I'm going to go out on a limb and estimate once every few months?
