Sweet Baby Sulcata

Left Aša in the sink today with the water running (so that I could fill the bowl I use for brushing)... came back and (s)he'd pooped right in the drain (it was open). Haha.

Aša is 130 grams today. I am worried about the humidity being too low. It's very dry here, even with a humidifier going 24/7. I soak for much, much longer now- sometimes for 2 or more hours at a time. I finally got a kiddie pool for an outdoor enclosure- pretty hard to find for a while- and there's a sprinkler next to it, so I can keep it pretty moist inside. But I don't think Aša likes being in it. (S)he just hides in the shaded part. Even though I open and spray the indoor enclosure very often, Aša's shell just looks so dry unless (s)he is soaking. There's a water bowl inside, and I frequently find Aša in it. I don't want Aša to dehydrate! What can I do?

(I tried to take a photo of the indoor enclosure, but I am not comfortable posting it, as it reveals too much of my bedroom.) 20190506_182529.jpg 20190422_162814.jpg
