    If you really want to maternally incubate - consider putting mom and the eggs into an incubator together.

    That way she gets to do her thing - but there isn't really any risk to the eggs.

    win. win.

    No such thing as a dumb question except the one you don't ask. The mother doesn't know the difference between a good egg and a slug. She may kick it out if the temperature of the slug drops enough that she notices, but for the most part, her and the other good eggs will prevent a noticeable difference. I hope this helps.

    Re: Maternal Incubation

    This thread made me re-think how I'm going to incubate any eggs I might get in the future if I buy a female... Thanks a bunch. Great information

    Sorry, but I'm gonna have to say no. An incubator is ideal for artificially incubating a clutch of eggs. Your female still needs to be able to regulate her body temp and you'd be removing that ability by turning her enclosure into an incubator and the stress involved would force her to abandon her clutch.

    This year is the first time I've ever had ball python slugs and the female that laid them coiled around the pile regardless of there being slugs among them. She didn't push any out so I removed them. She probably would have stayed coiled around the entire clutch considering 3 of the 5 eggs were slugs and made up most of the pile and one of the two viable eggs apparently died two or three weeks into incubation and I had to wait until now to remove it because it was stuck to the good egg. Lousy luck with that clutch thus far. *sigh* She's coiled around her remaining egg and it's due to hatch any day now.

    My spider and pastel butter are locking up, and I plan to maternally incubate the clutch (which is my first) and keep a backup incubator running just in case. I will do my best to document it all and hopefully provide another successful example of maternal incubation.
