First Time Breeding Need Advice

    Hello there,

    I have a corn snake that bred to my king snake on accident. Co habitations tank mates who can't live apart as they won't function without the other there.

    Well turns out they made babies as Jack surprised us this morning, by being female and Rose by being a boy, by popping out an egg around 9am. That and the second look to be slugs but 3 and 4 so far look to be viable. I made an incubator out of a poly box, wooden dowels for supporting the egg tray, temp gauge, and damp substrate.

    I've read temperatures need to be roughly 85-88 degrees, but the incubator has gone up to 100 a few times when I have the lid fully closed and I know that's definitely not good.

    If anyone has advice on how to handle this I'd appreciate it greatly. Last time I did any breeding it was with a red tail pair and the mom had complications and we lost all of them so I have no high hopes on this.

    And has anyone even heard of a corn and a king making babies before?? Seems odd to me to even happen.

    Thanks for reding this and any help y'all can provide.
