Hi Guys
Thanks for your replies, as i said before i have no expierence with pyhon eggs .I just `treated` the eggs in the same way as Western Hoggy eggs, (only at higher incubation temps.)
The incubator is made from a poly box, with heat mats conected to `pulse stat`. The incubator was tested and monitored over several weeks to make sure a `good ,constant heat` was maintained.
Inside the poly box i had a second box with about an inch of water ,and inside this box ,on mountings (so as above the water)was my incubation box, containing vermiculite.
the vermiculite was soaked,and then squeezed in my hand to get rid of excess water (again this is what i do with the Hoggies).
The air would only be circulated when i opened the lid for a `very quick look in` (every few days or so),not opened long enough to drop temps!
The young were all dead in thier eggs! There is still one surviving egg (which looks good to me!)
hope my description of the incubator is o.k. for you guys to understand, `reading my own description it seems very complicated,.....but it,s not (lol)`
now i,ll post some pics of the incubator
Many Thanks Again Guys
Heather/Carey
