    Merry Christmas snake people!!! I've just put my hognose into his brumating box. I am not planning on breeding him, I am only doing it because he kept going off food and it was worrying me. He is still nice and fat looking, just hasn't taken his last few meals which was expected this time of...

    Just curious, how many of you actually cool down the temps to prepare for breeding? Those that don't, what success do you have?

    Daft q...this is my first year of having snakes, (was a lizard girl) do I need to cool mine? Two of the corns, the royal and cali are all this years babies. The male corn, KSB and Milk are all over a year old (unsure of ages) Have no real plans to breed, but this house does get bloody cold

    Title says it all really. I know about hibernation but I'm not really sure what the difference between hibernation and a cooling period is. Can anyone explain? Ta.

    It's coming up to winter when I'm going to cool my corn snakes for breeding for next season. I have done lots of research but when people say they don't feed their snakes during brumation- do they actually or is it an exaggeration? I'm not sure because I'm kinda worried about not feeding my...

    Here is an air force air cooler. I've had it a few year but haven't used it for quite a while. This works by filling the bottom of the machine with water or water and ice etc. Air is them blown over the water to create a cool breeze. These are cheaper to run than air conditioning machines but...

    Hi, i was just wondering if somebody could give me a little advice? I finally have my female royals up to breeding size this year and now I am looking at the temperature cycling which will stimulate my animals to breed. I am using a pulse thermostat and am maintaining a basking spot of around...

    I'm possibly getting a male common boa from a friend of a friend who no longer can take care of him (first boa after royals and a corn :D). He's got a ridiculously accurate heating system incorporated, but I'm worrying about the temperature in summer. Its a 4x2x2 viv, so he needs to go in a room...

    I have two baby axies, Jenson and Lewis. Since we are having something currently resembling Summer their water temp is reaching 25 degrees. I have moved them to the landing (coolest room in house, no windows) but its not had much effect. As they are so small, 2-3 inches long maybe and just...

    We are not ready for breeding yet but when we do: To cool or not to cool, that is the question. I've seen on a thread or two that some people don't cool at the beginning of the breeding season. Apparently among other advantages it reduces RI risk. So how would you signal the start of the...

    I have heard that snakes need a cooling down time in the last 6 weeks of winter, but I wasnt sure about this. I am getting a snake soon and would like to know about this fully and if I have to do it. Thanks for any replies:2thumb:

    Does anybody know if the above thermostat is able to heat and cool at the same time, i.e can i plug in fans and a heatmat into it and it work both of them so if it gets to hot the fans come on and if it gets to cold the heatmat comes on, without switching manually? Any help on this would be...
