:It's a little late for brumation.Where are you brumating them?You have to make sure it stays between 45 - 55 degrees.You should have a water bowl that they can soak in with them.Most of my garters soak the entire 6 weeks.I would check on them only once or twice the entire time.
: Did you find these in the middle of winter?I f you did I would,nt bother brumating them.Either keep them at normal temps or let then go when it is warm enough.
Yes, they came out of hibernation early in the school where I work. I was keeping them until its warm enough, but they can't seem to get enough to eat. I've been buying 30 tuffies at a time (there are 3 snakes...one small one and two larger ones). The snakes start looking for more after only 2 or 3 days after eating all 30.
In a post below I asked how often they should eat.
Someone (sorry forgot the name) told me they would do ok to go back into brumation.
