    I agree with the coco fiber sphagnum moss blend for digging

    I also thought you meant a humid hide. Obviously there's no digging possible with paper towel. For a humid hide, I use a tupperware (or equivalent) container, turn it lid-side down, cut a hole in the side and put paper towel on the bottom which I then mist as needed.

    Hmmm..... I hadn't thought about putting sponge in his humid hide. Does your gecko drink from his actual water bowl? I've been using paper towels in his humid hide, but I need to keep it SO moist in there because that's the only place he actually drinks water.

    As far as the dig box, now that he's getting adventurous, I want to try and give him more enrichment. I've also ordered a folding table that I will be setting up as a safe environment for when I take him out of his enclosure.

    I think mine drink...though I've only caught them on very rare occasions lol.
    I have small lids from little condiment-size Tupperware that is right outside their warm hides. Nel either drinks out of it or plays in it because its dumped and moved about every other day. They both have three water dishes each near each hide.
    Mostly they get their moisture from their bugs. Wyrm won't eat roaches on his own and I feed him with forceps, so nights he gets roaches I dunk them in the water first so he gets a few extra drops that way too.
