I know it is many months since your post, but..

It is best to offer a warm spot 78-84 deg F if the snake has a meal in it. For a colubrid like a Mexican milksnake that is. Yes, many colubrids will digest at lower temps, but it is best to be safe.

I had some hatchling montane kings and some baby rosyboas many years ago. I had fed them one day, and a few hours later power went out in the neighborhood, and the room slowly cooled to about 68 deg and stayed there for the next 8 hours. No problem for the montane snakes, they did fine. But the rosies all regurgitated by morning. So it does depend on the species kept.

BTW the little rosies recovered from that incident and went on to be healthy and happy.
