:Your first 2 sentences confused me a bit - but If I catch what's you're saying correctly you got the ATB yesterday in shipment...

:71-82 degrees is a bit cool... I run my tank at 78-86 with around 90 degree basking spot... I wouldn't let the temps drop below 75 unless cycling/winter... (of course these are my personal recommendations/preferences) However, the stress may have had a lot to do with it - I would let a new snake settle in at least 3-5 days before attempting to feed. Your humidity is fine. I'd give the snake at least a few more days and then attempt another feeding... Make sure the pinky is not more than 1-2 days old and small as you can get them for a baby atb... Also, don't handle him and keep cage maintenance to a minimum while he is settling in... There is a wonderful caresheet I highly recommend at the link below, follow this to a tee and you should be fine... (also check out corallus.com)

::Just got ATB baby yesterday when I woke up this morning, found regurgitated pinky. His enclosure was set up about a month ago with 90% humidity level that dies out to about 65% overnight, temps are 82% hot side 71% cool side, what could cause the regurg problem, could it be the stress of the shipping and new environment. Also how long should I wait before attempting to feed after regurg? Any advice appreciated

Thanks, for your response sorry my post was confusing, I was posting from my Pocket Pc at a stoplight (Dam those small screens) LOL. Anyway I was trying to say that after putting him in his enclosure the first night he regurgitated a pinky. I setup his enclosure a month prior to getting him and it was stabilized at 71-82 degrees and 90-65 relative humidity, so I was confident that it wasn’t environmental, just wanted other opinions.
