What temperature do you use for ball python incubation?

I have been doing some research and cant seem to find what the best temp to keep your incubator at. What temps do you guys keep it at and about how long do your eggs incubate for at said temp?

88 or 89* is my preference. My incubator in my old room stayed right at 89. My new room runs a little warmer ambient so I keep it set to 88. I’ve seen them hatched in rack tubs at 84 degrees so it’s not super critical to hit an exact temp. The hotter you run the faster they’ll develop but the chances of things like kinking go up. The temps I use have my first pip on day 55-58.

Thanks! I also keep mine around 89 but wanted to see what others opinions were

I incubate at 87.5 and usually see my first pip around day 60.

88F here. I also keep another thermometer with a max/min record and try to make sure the max stays below 90 ideally.

I’m a firm believer that 87 to 88 is ideal incubating temperatures!
