Rep: bacardi is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Fogger

Hi.
I was thinking of either a zoomed repti fogger or a monsoo rain system for my fire salamanders, as work I away a bit. I have no problems with them being fed by some one but just want make sure there humid enough.
What do people think is the best one to buy?

Some people think the ultrasonic vibrations of a fogger can be irritating to salamanders.

I agree with Kaysie

Use an automatic mister or a simple drip system that splashes onto a plant or bark to disperse moisture

Constant high levels of humidity can be a serious problem for this species, particularly if ventilation is inadequate.
YouŽd be better off offering a moisture retaining substrate that is deep enough to borrow in. Covered with moss and leaf-litter it should keep for long periods between mistings. Half buried bricks are very useful.
