About this snake: Diamond Python
Few snakes take care of their young. They simply lay their
eggs, or give birth to their young in a suitable place and then
leave. Many pythons, however, are different. They will coil around
their eggs and incubate them. By shaking, or "shivering,"
the female generates heat (called shivering thermogenesis) and
keeps the eggs up to 11 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the surrounding
air. The best incubation temperatures for python eggs are between
86 and 91 degrees Fahrenheit.
