Do you allow your snake temperature gradient choices? If so, how much..what are the cold and hot spots on each side? What temps do your snake choose? when and why?

Do you do a forced cooling period during winter ? These are some other things that the herp community at large thinks what they are supposed to do.. But in reality there are much easier ways that do not involve the keeper so much. So it takes the guesswork out.. perfect for newbies because of less risk, higher success rate for multiple clutches and no worries of forced cooling and heating processes.

I tell ya. After 10 years you might have stumpled on a gold mine of people here who think outside of the box (not really we just been doing this for a while).. and that simply means to learn about the snake ethology and try to get as close as possible in a box. Once you learn the new method you will realize the unlearning of the old way is the hardest part.. When you do, you will understand the snakes better and all this is only a puzzle because of what you have been first indoctrinated in. People usually tend to believe the first things they are taught and treat it as gospel. Especially if they have been doing that way for a long time. This is where thinking outside the box comes in for you.. not so hard for a newbie.. more difficult for someone as experienced as yourself.
