Hard to say if the whole clutch would or not exhibit kinking, some individuals might be predisposed to kinking, some might evade it by having a temperature average just slightly different, etc. So many variables, and nobody has the numbers to really make a clear and reasonable conclusion. It also may be genetic AND temps during incubation. I learned this year many thermometers are not real accurate, and that if D. couperi are kept too long, too low, they will not hatch, development was seemingly arrested at some point. Others in the same tub did hatch some, some after 135 days. There is a lot to be learned about incubation I think, and yet I know a guy who did everything theroretically right and he had some issues. When it goes well, it seems so simple, jut let nature take its course... Other times when confronted with a dilemma or even worse, you know not why, it goes sour and you are sad and blue...these challenges are the reason in part we don't get bored with this taxa? Good luck to all, and work on genetic diversity, it can only help. Vic
