Since I live in Washington State, I can usually get the snake room cool at night if leave windows open. Then I close it up in the morning, and close the blinds so the sun doesn't heat the room up. We have been having a "heat wave" the last few days, so it has been more challenging. It got up to 102 in the Portland/Vancouver area on Saturday the 4th.

I always provide them with a moist hide, which they use frequently, and also soak them in water occasionally to make sure they stay hydrated.

Since they go for long periods without eating, keeping them cool is very important. Normally this time of year I think they spend most of their time underground to stay cool.
