Hello Jeff,

Somehow your post left me scratching my head a little.
Gifu Prefecture is in Japan....as are conspicillatus.
I do not believe that you will be able to find any "jimuguri" (Euprepiophis conspicillatus) anywhere in China....except perhaps in captivity.

I have collected them in Hokkaido, Japan.
In the northern part of their range, you can sometimes find the "Aka jimuguri".
Aka means, Red in Japanese. Jumuguri means, one who burrows.
The Aka jimuguri is a red patternless form...VERY NICE!

Of course Klaus is a wonderful reference for the temperature info.
And the temperature info you posted seems fine.
It gets very cold in Hokkaido, Japan....so they can withstand a considerable temp drop during brumation.

Anyway, your reference to China just threw me off a little.
Perhaps it was just a minor geographic error while typing quickly. However, if this species has been recently discovered to also exist in China...I would be interested in knowing about it.

Last year I played with captive hatched babies of Euprepiophis conspicillatus while at the Marayama Zoo with my friend who is the Curator of Reptiles there. Lots of fun. We did a little snake hunting together as well.
Take care.

Your friend,
