    Will be out of town for 3 days.

    So.. My girlfriend and I will be out of town for 3 days. How should I handle humidity for those 3 days? The only person that is going to be in the house is absolutely terrified of snakes, and will refuse to help. So should I give them enough humidity to last 3 days? IN other words get the humidity to about 5% over what it should be, and let it die down over the 3 days? I could also turn off the fans in front of my enclosures for those 3 days. That would slow evap. When I get back home. I can always ask the person that will be there to spray the enclosures, but my worry is if either of them are out, and they climb out she is so scared that she would not be able to put them back in. I'm sort of stuck here. I think they will be ok for three days, as long as I change the water the day we leave, and bump up the humidity. What do y'all think?

    I wouldn't sweat 3 days at all.

    I would either feed at least 3 days before you leave or wait until you get home...just in case of a regurge. Although unlikely, you don't want a regurged prey item festering in the enclosure while you're gone.

    As for humidity, just make sure water bowls are full with clean water just before you leave and you'll be fine.

    I agree with Craig. As long as they're got fresh water I wouldn't worry about the humidity.
