I was asking about central Florida but what I really wanted to know was the background temps. Also I'm not sure what you mean by "not hibernating". I understand that hibernating traditionally means a long period of cooling but what about running a background temp of say 55F while maintaining a hotspot of 90F ? That would not be hibernation in the traditional sense but it would still be quite different from running a continuous background temp of 75F with a hotspot of 90F .

I imagine the 55F-90F would be quite successful because the snakes could get cool whenever they wanted. On the other hand I wouldn't rule out the 75F-90F method but it would certainly be news to me if montane kings could successfully reproduce without any access to cool temps whatsoever.
