With the fluctuating temperatures here in AZ, I'm worried about my atrox and cerastes.

Ready to buy a wine cooler to keep stable temps. Comes with a fresh air fan and quiet motor. I can still keep the beer and wine chilled too. haha. Dual compartments for 2 different temps.

What temps should I keep them?

I have only hibernated Northern Snappers. Told by 2 Herp phd's that below 50F, reptiles don't require nourishment.

Now I have the rattlers and it's new ball field.

Do cerastes even brumate?

Thanks in advance.
