For what it is worth, I haven't ever heard of this. From a scientific atandpoint, I don't see how the simple development of an embryo by cell division could produce any measurable amount of heat. It would take tremendous amounts of muscle contractions to do so (look at female pythons) enough to raise the temp 1-2 degrees above the ambient air temp, which shouldn't be enough to kill any embryos.
