even google not give me exacity anwers.

If you are keeping a sand boa, house humidity levels are perfectly acceptable. Just make sure you provide a water dish, and a proper hotspot and there is no need to worry.

Re: need help to correct the humidity %

They require something around 50% (on the cool side)... opposite of what the name seems to imply; sandboa's do not live in sand.

Ps. relative humidity depends on temperature, hence you'll find different answers because it matters where those measurements are taken (hot, cold, in between, the thermo gradient). F.e. 30% relative humidity at 95F is the same as 52% at 77F.
