I have only been producing bearded dragons and ball pythons the last year or two, which has got old and a bit unexciting, but getting the first batch of eggs, incubating them and hatching is always fantastic!

I cant wait to get eggs from my Gila's!! That will be the best!!

Are you housing your Beaded's together, if so any problems? I was housing my Gila's together but they would fight a bit at dinner time so since I had the enclosure space I decided to seperate them.

I dont know much about incubating heloderma eggs, since its a big secret and all, lol ... but im curious about your incubator, what made you decide to go with dry heat around your egg tub oppossed to a heated water around your egg tub set up?

I use a styro cooler filled with about 4" of water which is heated by a aquarium submersable heater, egg tub sits on a rack inside the cooler at water level ... its pretty much a 100% humidity incubator. I dont know the correct method for incubating heloderma eggs but this cooler set up has been working great for me so far with at least a 95% hatch rate.

I know a lot of people who have tried using the Hovators, all with bad results ... they all switched over to cooler set up like I use and have since been getting pretty good results.
