I live in the Deep South where the weather rarely reaches 40. I have a trio of Russians that I would like to try to breed next year and from what I have heard they need to hibernate to do so. So what is the best was to hibernate them? We donít have a basement because the water table is too high and I have heard that refrigerators produce co2 that would kill them, we cant leave them outside it doesn't stay cold enough, so what can I do?
