I am a novice at brumating snakes - I purchased an adult male hognose that has been previously cycled and bred - he took food from me once (2nd week of November) and would not eat after that. On the advice of a friend, I have placed the male into brumation (used a rubbermaid shoe box) and am maintaining temps between 50 - 55 degrees - I have read mixed messages about checking on brumating snakes - my guy is currently buried in the substrate so I cannot see him to check his breathing - what should I do?
