Just an update. They have been hibernating just fine since January.

I got a wine cooler to hibernate my herps in. Controlled temperature and a fresh air fan built in. Very quiet. Temp is set at 48F.

In the morning when it's dark and cold in the house, I open the door to refresh the air now and then. A water dish is there, too.

Still have room for 8 standard bottles.

Next weekend I will start raising the temp one degree per day until 65F. Then they can go into their cages.
