Thanks for your response…I'm also in the LV area with an outdoor 8’ x 30’ “naturalistic” setup (kept and bred NV S. Aters from 2001-2009 when I decided to try a Calico)... Yes I also keep them outdoors with a clear cool house cover from Nov/Dec through the end of Feb, and new this last winter a partition for the hibernaculum section with a minimum air temperature range thermostat of 35-45F. I do believe she died during the winter but I did not discover her until March after the male had already been active for weeks and she hadn't made an appearance. This would have been her 2nd season with me (purchased as an adult)She successfully brumated once without the new partition & thermostat. And The male(purchased as a juvenile)has wintered outside 3 times; once without a cover at all.
How did/do you winter your Hispidus? Have you had success with breeding?
Thanks again,
A
