Hiya Adeline-

Sk8r009 also lives in GA. so he should be able to answer all your snapper questions.

As long as your snapper isn't too young (i.e hatchling or a little older) and is not i'll or underweight, brumation (slowing down its activity) is fine. But some people say that isn't necessary if your not planning to breed it. But for those of us who has several large snappers, letting them brumate and not eat for a couple of months let us recover finanacially from the food bill.

I don't know exactly what temp commons stop eating (they've been seen walking under sheets of ice), but ali'snaps stop eating around the lower 70's.

You could also ask Mr. Lynn DeVries. He visits these board from time to time and he is brumating his turtles right now.

Good Luck,
Gam
