So the twins hatched out yesterday and unfortunately they both have kinked spines, not horrible severe but pretty noticeable.
Does anyone know what can be the cause of this?

I have read that major inbreeding can do it, the sire and dam are completely unrelated so that's not it. The incubator was set at 90 with an internal temperature of 89 so that shouldnít of been a problem.

My only other thought is because the egg was a normal sized egg with 2 snakes in it, I have read that too small of eggs may also be a reason for it, which I believe this is mine.

What are your thoughts?

heres the pics of them




Thanks
Zack
