In Reply to: Re: Incubating racer eggs...please help! posted by Matt on March 29, 2001 at 11:56:15:
Thank you so much! I just got the snakes a few hours ago and they are beautiful! Once again, thanks for the help, hopefully in a few months there will be some baby racers slithering around!:) Thanks again
: What would probably be the easiest thing to do, would be pick up a "hova bator" at a feed or reptile supply store (they are usually around 30 dollars) and purchase some vermiculite (coarse, or medium, not that extra fine stuff). You will need some type of digital thermometer, preferably with some type of indoor/outdoor feature so you can put it on the outside and put the probe on the inside. The hova bators use a simple wafer thermostat that requires a little adjusting, so have the incubator ready and calibrated several days before you expect the eggs (if you have an idea when they are due) I recommend filling a small tray or plastic shoe/sweater box about 3/4 of vermiculite and mixing just enough water to make it clump when you squeeze it. Try to set the temperature to around 80.5/81 to leave a small margin of error and wait for your eggs.
: If you dont know already, dont try to seperate the eggs, place them in the incubation medium as closely as possible to the position which they were deposited by the female.
: Hope this helps
