Sorry,I hit the post button by accident the first time.

I ahve a baby hognose that's about 6" long. She was feeding on unscented pinks when I got her in mid-November, but since then she hasn't eaten at all for me. If she were older I wouldn't think anything of it and let her brumate. But she is so young I didn't think she'd be able to brumate safely. Should I keep trying to get her to eat or should she be brumatated? She is also hanging out on the cool side of her tank almost constantly. Any help would be appreciated.
