Del and I were just talking about it today. Last year was a down year for offspring for us. This year Del figured we'd lower the temperature in the hibernaculum a few degrees and we kept the snakes down 3 extra weeks. Last year it seemed we had to coax the snakes to eat after hibernation. This year they came out eating everything around. Numerous pituophis have been actively breeding so far. This will be our first year and I'm anxious to see some Black Pine eggs from our females. The Great Basins and Pacific Gophers didn't produce last year, but they've been active this year. My Elaphe won't stop to eat. LOL. There seems to be a big difference in dropping the temp a few degrees as far as breeding. Of course, we still have to wait and see if any drop eggs. We're 3 weeks behind our usual schedule due to the extra hibernation time.

::to convert Billy. LOL. Del and I set up the hibernaculum in his garage.
