Hi.

The snake will not hibernate just because it is that time of year. It takes it's clues from the temperature. So you are the one to decide if it hibernates this year.

My guess is that you don't want to hibernate it so keep it as warm as you do now.

The only reason most people hibernate their snakes is that it makes the snakes want to breed afterwards.
