I have had many successful ball clutches, this is my 1st with boas.
1st question - After female has become gravid, what should day/night ambient and hot spot temps be to produce a nice healthy slug free litter.

im using a 6 ft neo , so she has plenty of room to regulate her temps. I have one end where hot spots are, equipped with two pieces of heat tape under cage 11" x 2 sheets long. so she basicly has a hot spot of 24" by 22" and i use a helix to do the job. i have been giving her night hot spot of 83 and day 88, ambient temps have been night 76-78 daytime 81-82.

have had them together since nov 30, 2004.

she is 7 ft 20 plus pound sharp female.

thats really all im concearned with, is right temps, dont want to go too hot or too cold.
