Acitivity levels

It seems to me that the reduced level of activity that captive snakes, especially big, otherwise active snakes, experience in captivity might be responsible for the higher level of egg binding?
I'm thinking that the natural activity of an indigo in the wild might facilitate the eggs moving into a laying position, whereas a captive snake would more likely get stuffed up, so to speak. A big snake is going to be kept in a relatively small enclosure, restricting movement compared to smaller snakes, plus indigoes in the wild are more active than, lets say, rat snakes.
Is there something to this idea? Or maybe its old news...

Joe
