some healthy snakes will go a year without eating.
You're right she is in hibernation mode. Turn off the lights and heat.So long as she doesn't get cooler than the ambient temperature you mentioned she'll be fine. Not necessary to try to make her eat.It's actually not a good idea while she's cooled down anyway because she won't be able to digest and assimilate effectively.Come spring, when
the daylight hours extend and the days get warmer
you may start to see her being more active.She'll
let you know when she wants to eat again by her activity patterns:ie:alot of tongue flicking and
appearing to search her enclosure for possible prey.Let her be.Just think of all the money your saving not having to feed her right now.That's the cool thing about keeping snakes.:^)
