    What i used to do if it got below 70F in the snake cages, was pack them all in their sterilite tubs and put them in the car and go to sleep in my car with the engine running and heater set on mid. Made for an uncomfortable night but at least the snakes were warm. Snakes are not going to be hurt by 70-75F temps for a few hours. Heck i believe in the mountains in Peru where BCL come from, it can get down to 50s or 60s at night and they live there fine. You might be surprised how cool of temps snakes can tolerate. It's the high temps that will kill them fast or scramble their little brains.

    Re: possible power outages tomorrow

    I was going to invest in a generator, but decided to wait until I can afford a better one.
    This thread has me reconsidering a kerosene heater as great energy heat backup!

    Kind of. It's like hibernation but they dont normally hibernate. So long term, its not good as it lowers their immune system but short term, it doesnt hurt assuming you dont have a cold AND wet cage. That can trigger a RI just like hot AND dry can too.

    As far as energy efficiency, i dont think they can be more efficient than they already are. My snakes tend to not do much unless they smell dinner or have taken a poop or piss and are trying to get away from it lol.

    Look into these too if you just have to heat a room. http://www.mrheater.com/big-buddy-portable-heater.html You can even hook them up to a 20 lb LP tank like for BBQs if you expect days without power. Otherwise can just pick up the 1 lb propane bottles.
