Hi I have bred kings for a number of years and in my opinion should be cooled to 68/70 mid october and brought out early march.the refusal to eat is perfectly natural and providing the animal is in good condition should not be a problem.


Do you do that because you breed them or you would do it even if not a breeder?
My CA king is doing great this year but last year he stopped eating mid Dec to late Feb. He just hid . I did keep temps warm but he has a cool side (low 70s) and under his hide area in his cool side was where he hid for those months. His warm side mid 80s he never went to or visited his hide area in his warm side.
This year I was prepared to cool him but as of now still eating still active.
He was an eating machine untill mid Dec so he had weight to carry him those months . This year I was going to just shut heat off mid dec after feeding him early Oct but again he stayed active and eating.
Have you ever just had any go no problem all year long without brumation?
