::Your snakes will probably do ok under those conditions but I don't think you are ever going to get fertile eggs.

If you are serious about breeding these snakes you should:

-- look into getting some cages that are large enough that the snakes can thermoregualte. cool side / basking side type set up.

-- in the fall / winter...those temps aren't going to cut it.
you need to have nightime drops (in my humble opinion) in the mid 50's to low 60's, then you need to get the temps back up during the day to allow for basking.

the way I do it is by opening windows at night.

You're snakes will BREED without your current conditions, but the chances of getting good eggs is very slim.
