As an old time Greyband breeder, I did not experience that.
Whats missing in your story is temps. I do not disagee with WC's being stronger, I do with why.
In captivity we average to a point of insanity. This temp, that temp, etc. In nature, they use a wide range of temps.
Whats important is, what these temps do. They use different temps for REAL reasons. We understand things in the exact. 82.34553240F, the animals use what FEELS RIGHT, at the time. And are adjusting, all the time.
I also think, being stuffed in a box, is mentally and behaviorally minimizing. Which effects their biology.
My story from the late sixties, when my friend came by on his way to west texas, he caught a gravid Black coachwhip. It laid eggs in the bag, in the car. He set them up and kept them in the car for a month of collecting. He then came back dropped them off with me and they hatched and all the neonates were strong and healthy. So if you have ever been in car in AZ. and West Texas in June and July. It makes the story funny.
