Thanks Ryan!

This is the 7th clutch of intermedia I have hatched. Most of mine have hatched sometime around 90 days (give or take), but have ranged from 80 - 94 days - and some clutches have taken several days for the entire clutch to hatch.

My adult females have double clutched every year so far, even without being reintroduced to males. I did not reintroduce either adult female this year, yet both laid second clutches. There seemingly was lower fertility in these, as some of the "good" eggs went bad (including 3 of 4 from the Santa Ritas female), and both females laid a few slugs before the "good" eggs were laid.

I will start cooling all of my adult snakes this weekend, using a small window unit air conditioner to keep room temps in the 60's. I leave the heat tape on all winter for the green rats per work / articles on them by Cranston (Merker). I am going to leave the heat tape and heat cable on for all of my southern and southwestern U.S. snakes, this year (subocs, meahllmorum, L. g. holbrooki, Keys Corns) - but will cool my rhinos and coxi without heat tape. I cool the green rats for about 2 months, from the end of December / beginning of January through the end of February.
