Interesting question. After researching this question I have concluded that the main advantages for land animals in areas of high humidity would be first that high humidity generally makes the temperature of the air more constant: it does not have the extreme differences between high and low temperatures seen in the drier climates. Animals will be healthier in general with more stable daily temperatures. The second reason is that high humidity is also relative to the amount of precipitation any given climate receives, which in turn provides adequate moisture for abundant plant (producer level) growth, providing abundant food (energy) for those food chains.
