:I have been reading on other forums and such that people cool their kingsnakes into the 50's for hibernation. Is this true? Also how would one do this (I live in florida and the winters down here usually don't get that cold)? Any info would be appreciatted.

It is not unheard of for folks to put their reptiles in old refrigerators (not on the coldest setting!) for the winter, periodically opening the door to allow for air exchange and to check up on the captives.
