The Snakes In question are Ball Pythons and this was the first time this pair mated. Also for the record, they are from 2 totally different breeders and born different years and should in no way be related. The other instance I spoke of was a different pair of normal balls.

Secondly, I usually use the Max/Min gages and some seem to fog up or go out before 60 days.. I had used one and never seen any spike, but Once the temps appear to be stable, I was not checking them as much. I am leaning towards the spike, but I also know that just as with all animals and reptils, deformities can occur. Thanks for the input.

I am not saying I am a professional by no means, but I have owned BP's since before there were morphs available and I had some breed over the years, but just recently started into breeding. I am not a total rookie, but looking for input to determine iof the incubatoir was the culprit. I am already looking for a nice incubator or look to convert a fridge for next season. I have also had a total of 6 clucthes the past 2 years and this issue happened in just 2 of them. I hate to try again, but I bet if I marked the incubator I would see it happen in just that one again..
