So I'm brumating snakes for the first time. Bonnie and Clyde, my ribbon snakes, are going in for a nice three-week nap on the recommendations of members of thamnophis.com. I have to say, it makes me nervous! I'm used to tropical snakes that need heat! San Diego doesn't get very cold, but still! They're now in my (attached) garage, covered with a beach towel, with lots of clean water and their live plants removed. I hope they sleep well! Moreover, I hope they start eating again when they wake up! I had to jury-rig a temporary fish tank for the platys they've been ignoring, since my little 5-gallon Chi just isn't enough for 15+ fish! Any tips are greatly appreciated!
