I believe it would work well for other reptile eggs but you will need to read up on the requirements.
This incubator goes together quite quickly and will be able to hold three 10.5 x 7.5 x 4 inch "shoe boxes" per level. You can have two levels in a cooler of this size. It takes about 30 minutes total to assemble once you have all the supplies on hand. It also took about 15 minutes after it was complete to come up to temp and hold it. When you add the Egg boxes with media inside, it will take several hours to rise the media to the proper temperature so allow, at least 24 hours for all to come together prior to needing it!
I am not an electrician and I post this information for reference purposes only. This is simply what works for me. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please feel free to share.
Step 1: Materials
Flex Watt Heat Tape 11" Wide Tape (110V) (20 Watts per foot)
Flex Watt Cord With Attached Copper Clip Set
2" Wide Professional Foil Tape (UL Listed)
BAH-1000 Thermostat (1000 Watt Triple Plug-In)
Themometer with Probe
2 Racks (I used raised cookie racks for the bottom rack and a piece of closet rack for the top)
6 Plastic Egg Boxes (Tupperware is great!) around 10 x 8 x 4
Hatch Rite (egg container media)
Various self-tapping screws
Step 2: Assembly
Step 3: Installing the Racking
After you have completed mounting the lower rack, you are ready to install the upper rack. I use the white closet wire racks that you can buy at any Home Depot and Lowes for the upper rack. I measure and cut it to fit exactly into the internal shelf that is already built into the Cooler walls. If you did everything else up to this point as I have, it will fit perfectly. If you have modified anything up to this point you can use screws to mount the racking being sure to leave a minimum of 5.5 inches between the lower and upper racks (must make sure you can fit you egg boxes!) The second picture shows the setup with both racks installed.
Step 4: Temperature Control
Step 5: Testing Your Incubator
NOTE - please setup your cooler well in advance of egg laying to be sure everything is in working order when you need it. It can take some time for you to fine tune the temperature to where you need it and you do not want to have eggs waiting around for you to finish.
I like to put the media (not opening the bags yet) and my containers into the cooler as it would be when you have eggs. If I am expecting a full cooler with all six containers full, then that's how I set it up. If I only have three clutches expected then I only setup three. This way you can have the temperature ready to go for the volume that will be inside. I like to use Hatch Rite as it is pre-mixed and ready to go out of the bag. Set the cooler up as planned and then sit back and watch the Thermometer. You will need to set your Thermostat to the desired temperature to hatch your particular clutch. For Ball Pythons, I use 88 - 90 degrees.
