That was decades ago. What I learned was valuable. It taught me, I am not right. I can only attempt to be right. THE ANIMAL IS ALWAYS RIGHT.
To me, its simple, ITs either ego or ignorance that stops folks was trying something different to see if the animal will respond. Heck it may be fear of failure, as they stick to what they were told by people.
Already several people here stated that their picky animals made a turn around by simply increasing temps.
Whats funny is, I and some of my friends, do not take temps, we simply manipulate the temps until the animals do great. Who friggin cares what temp it is. Snakes in the field do not have therometers.
The picky snake folks are all about the temps. So and so, said this temp is good. And they stick to that until the snake dies, or lives a minimal life. You know, never grows up.
Nature has all manner of restrictions, cold, hot, drought, lack of food, disease, predators etc. You have none of that. WHAT IS YOUR FRIGGIN EXCUSE. Oh I know, its the snakes fault. Good luck with that. Its not the snakes fault, that is a sticking weak arse excuse.

Lastly, as I always say, if your happy with a picky dwarfed snake, then by all means ignore all I say. Then you try to make it about me. sir, its not about me, its about the snake. My I be honest, It seems you folks simply refuse to accept responsibility.
My rule is, anything bad that happens to my captives is MY FAULT, anything good, is all about the snakes ability. All a keeper does is allow them to do what they are designed to do. The truth is, they don't need you, except when WE put them in boxes. Cheers and out to see hogs in nature.
