I have been reading about tons of people having problems with egg binding and no one coming up with a reason for it happening in the first place!!!!!! Could it be simple dehydration?? Indigos spend alot of time underground like ball pythons. We keep ball pythons soaking wet all the time. Should we not be keeping indigos just as wet?? Has anyone seen a indigo with scale rot from being kept to wet? I have see no other snake with such a high egg binding problem as the indigo. It has to be something we are doing. Surely indigos don't have this problem in the wild. What are y'all thoughts on this??
