Typically most vivs come with four, one in each corner.

Just make sure you don't make the mistake I made early last year and put them on backwards or you'll come back to find your snake has pushed them off and gone for a walk

You're not the first or the last to do that.

Isn't it safe to say that the amount of vents depends on what animals you're intending on keeping in the viv.....As they don't all have the same humidity requirements ? More vents for a lower humidity and less for a higher ?

Default Vents

Hamish is completely right, what are you putting in there?
In most cases more the better! and if your worried about them falling out put a couple of spots of silicone on first

Even high humidity species should have plenty of ventilation, you need to find another way to keep humidity up rather then lack of vents. Really you want vents top and bottom 3 across the top (at least) and 3 across the bottom (left, centre and right) the more the better. The reason is more air circulation then it is to do with humidity, yes you will likely need to mist more but your animal will be healthier for it (look at exo terras, used to keep frogs etc, high humidity species, and exo terras are one of the best ventilated setups available)
