Yet another excellent point! My kings have a warm spot and cool spot, ranges from the 70 to 80s. I brumate them by slowly reducing the amount of heat they receive, and eventually getting rid of the heat source and leaving them be. Temps in the 50's and 60's at its coolest. I wait until they slow their activity down, and give me the signs via inactivity. My kings tend to do this in October November. They stay quiet until about February, and begin to return to their normal activities. I usually introduce them for breeding around this time, and it either goes 2 ways. The male runs for his life lol, or he jumps the female right away. He will usually try to eat her after...perhaps his genes are part of the problem? haha
