Good luck and just one thing.
I would suggest making the temp drop a gradual thing for them over a few days.
I think that is how many people lose that occaisional snake during hibernation.
That sudden severe drop or increase in temps can be too much some times.
May your Tiawans be horny and fertile.

:Thanks a bunch... They are taiwans, and they are currently being housed together. Male shows LOTS of interest in breeding, but the females are very NOT interested. This will be their first time breeding, so i was pretty much planning on cooling them anyway. I live in Seattle, Wa, so cooling is usually not a problem, even in summer. LOL. Basement stays around 55 degrees year round. So i'll toss them into cooling today.. Thanks for the reply!

::TP said something about advice on brumating. If they're Taiwans, there's a good chance they'll breed w/o any brumation. I would say you could probably cool them for another 6 to 8 wks, but it might depend on where you're at too, and how difficult it is to cool down. Either way you should be ok. Good luck. TC.
