I have a Brown and Yellow barred morph Kingsnake that I found floating on the pool vac a year ago. He has been an awesome pet, very tame and an easy keeper. About a month ago he refused food so I thought he might be going into brumation although I am not lowering the temp in his cage. I am keeping it at the same temp and the light on for 12 hours. Do snakes just automatically brumate based on the seasonal changes? The temps here have still been 80-90 until this week when it has been 70's, but days are shorter. Should I keep the tank the same, should I offer him food, should I not handle him, and how long will this last? Any input would be appreciated.
