If you look below you will see that I accidentally froze two of my snakes. There were two other snakes in the same containers that survived. In both containers the water bowls had iced over. The surviving snakes are up and eating well. So they survived down to 32 for a short period. However this is extremely dangerous as the survival rate was 50%. They can take 33-34 degrees for several months (I had done this in the past because I couldn't get my fridge set on a higher temp for some reason). Most people brumate at 45-55 degrees.
