I'm new to breeding Texas Rats and I'm curious about brumation. I've done my homework, I understand why, and how, but I'm curious about the random post all over the Internet I have seen about non-brumation breeding with various colubrids that most people brumate.

It seems every discussion on it someone is basically saying they just throw them together and bam, breeding occurs. But I can't find anyine discussing the brumation of Texas Rats specifically.

The reason I am curious is because I'm wondering how much they brumate in the wild.

I live in North Texas and have found rat snakes lurking in December, specifically at Waterloo lake. Some days its 30 degrees and the next day its 76 degrees.

So what is the deal with non-brumation breeding?
