    I know when I was searching incubators in the past I saw there are reptile incubators. I believe the humidity is way different for them. If you google it you can probably find a good page of info...

    Snake eggs can be complicated and difficult to hatch, and often take far longer (Ball Pythons take 52 days!)

    If you let me know the species, I can either tell you more specifics or find out.

    Boas are live-bearers, which means they give birth to live babies.

    Interesting, no?

    If you care to PM me with specific questions and interest, I'll be more than happy to help you out, I sometimes forget to come back and check on threads. [​IMG]

    I had a pair of redtail boas that had a clutch. The female was around 10ft and the male 7ft. She had 17 live babies. Two didn't make it and the rest I sold. That was really fun! I had fun with them until they became to large and unpredictable for my liking. I gave up the snakes and moved onto chickens. Lets hope they don't grow teeth! [​IMG] Have you ever been bit by a 10ft snake? [​IMG] It makes you think(do I really want a 10ft snake?? huh do you??). They are very cool snakes though. Have fun.
