    This is what happens in an open topped enclosure.

    What type of enclosure are you using? Can't really see it in the pic.

    After looking at your comments, I believe this cover isn't good at keeping the temp and humidity. To tackle the problem for now, I decided to put a towel to minimize the temp and humidity loss. 1547196042418.jpeg

    This has been going on for a few hours. It maintained the temp pretty well, but not adequate for maintaining humidity

    By the way, my sully's appetite went back to normal having the temp rised to 37°c. Thanks so much.

    A towel also allows airflow and will let your heat and humidity escape. Try using some aluminum foil or plastic, if it is not too hot.

    Tom help. My sully lost its appetite again and this time I have the temperature right, at 29c on the cool side. I'm so scared. What can I do?!
