I certainly agree with your remarks about incubation temperature. 85 deg. is risky for corns. I'd recommend, as you do, aiming for at least two or three degrees lower - even 79 or 80 deg. will do very well. The biggest concern I have with incubating eggs where I live, is keeping the humidity high enough. I'm in a locale where the climate is extremely dry.

:What are you using to keep them at that temp? If it's possible, I would try to lower the temps by 2 degrees or so...high temps have been linked to kinks, and it is better to have the eggs incubate a little longer than have deformed snakes.
