    Well, Brat, my jungle carpet python is definitely pregnant:). I am not real sure if I should let her incubate the eggs or if I should put them in an incubator to hatch them. I am learning about the necessities (temp, humidity, etc...) but there isn't any real deciding factor so far. I would really appreciate any input anyone has on this subject as it is my first time dealing with this problem.

    Welcome to the club, it's that time of the year and most all boas and pythons are breeding. I prefer to incubate the eggs in an incubator, though if you have a large one you can set the temp a little lower and let your female incubate the eggs in the incubator.

    Normal temps for python eggs are 29-31C as far as humidity I've never worried much just mix your substrate one to one per weight and add water as needed. It gets a little tricky when the eggs start giving out water but until then you can't do much wrong in an incubator.

    I would agree, you have much more control over conditions in an incubator.

    I agree, incubator is much better. She can very easily turn the eggs.
