Yeah, I live on the east coeast of central Florida and I have many different types here and don't ever do any "formal" brumation either. There is a window for them to sense the photoperiod and they get exposed to some cooler temps here and there with the cooler months, but they are never exposed to prolonged very cool periods at all. I've had very good success with corns in the past and have had GREAT fertility and clutch sizes in the past as well. a153fish (Jorge) can attest to this too because he has a huge female corn that I used to have that laid a whopping 35 good eggs prior to him getting her. all hatched and were very healthy too. This year was even MUCH MILDER as far as cool weather goes and again, a 15 egg clutch out of a small female,...all good!

Certainly nothing wrong with doing it either though, and it can also have some benefits as Jorge also mentioned too. My Hondurans are the same way too, as well as most of my kings, with the likely exception of the Outer Banks that are a more northern race of the getula complex. Since when does it ever get 55-60 degrees for 2 or 3 months down in Nicaragua or Honduras?..LOL!
