This thread has me thinking, and I'm curious now about not using an incubator for my snakes, all colubrids.
So do you just mist the eggs occasionally or moisten the medium? And do you move them from the top of the fridge to the floor when temps hit, say 85? I realize some fluctuation in temps is natural, but what are the ranges? New York got pretty hot last summer, and my apt. had to be in the high 90s at times.
My biggest problem with incubating eggs in my homemade set-up is that I get fruit flies that also use the medium to lay their eggs.
