Hi guys,

I think you and Aaron have hit the nail on the head. It's likely that because you allow fluctuation in incubation temps you do not see such issues. I have had a few spinal kinks over the many thousand colubrids and pythons that I've hatched, and most could be attributed to "oh shat" moments when I've walked into the incubation closet and realized that the thermo malfunctioned or was accidently reprogrammed to allow damaging heat for several hours. But, when incubating colubrids on a shelf, as you guys mentioned, with fluctuating temps that allow cooler night time lows, such issues don't occur. Thanks.

Will
