Note 1: Temperatures and humidity levels are approximates based on our own experiences. Temperatures during the last week of incubation can fluctuate quite substantially as hatchlings begin to moderate their own body temperatures, so ventilation holes on the incubator need to be adjusted to avoid overheating of eggs (see your own incubator instructions).

Note 2: Do not open your incubator until most of the young have hatched (usually around 2 days after the first young has hatched) as doing so can dramatically drop the humidity level inside the incubator and cause hacthlings to stick to the shell or suffer mortal chilling.
