:Should all Alterna be cooled down in the winter or only if they are breeding? I am new to greybands and kingsnakes in general. I have read conflicting information and would appreciate your opinions.
:Thanks

They don't necessarily have to be cooled, but if the animal is in good health and it's done correctly it may be beneficial. Some snakes will go off feed voluntarily in the winter, and cooling them may result in a better appetite.
