In Reply to: GBK query about brumation posted by JuneBug on November 02, 2002 at 15:02:27:

:Hey,
:I have a 3 year old GBK and it has been off feed for about 4 weeks (since October 1). The temperature of the cage is 70 F on cool and 87 F on hot. I would like to brumate her for 2-3 months because I think she will lose more weight if I keep her warm than if I brumate her.

:So my main question is can I or should I brumate a snake if I do not plan to breed it. Also, I have a spot in my basement that is 50 degrees and this would be where I would keep it.

:Thanks for help,
:Chris
:

go for it! if it is in good health and has good weight. i am brumating my cal. kings and desert kings at 50 degrees and have been getting 100% results for two years. my gray bands are only yearlings but desert kings live in the same area so it will work. good luck
