    Theyíre all looking so awesome! That boa is a stunner. Are you deliberately cooling everyone down a bit this winter or letting it happen naturally as ambient temps in the room cool? And do you think youíll fast Klauss this year? I have so many questions!

    I am kinda cooling everyone this year. I haven't put the heater in the critter room yet like I normally do this time of year but I will if it gets too cold. My ambient temps are in the low-mid 70s during the day and as low as 70 at night. I won't totally fast them but I'll probably only offer food once a month for the winter. This is my first winter cooling so we'll see how it goes. Do you feed normally or dial back your feedings a little during the winter? Not sure how much winter you get out in Cali though.

    This will only be my second winter with the kids, so Iím still figuring everything out! Last year, my temps werenít quite dialed in for the scrub and his cage got kind of cool in the winter...so he hid and slept a lot, as I recall. And my Dumerilís was already feeding so infrequently that she seemed to take most of the winter off anyway.

    Now that their setups are stable and my herpstat has proven itself...I feel like I should drop their temps a bit. Seems like most keepers do?

    Although, the scrub seems to like warmer temps. I set his basking spot to 95 during the day and 83 at night and he loves to sleep right under it. All day, every day, he just rotates from hot perch to warm hide to cool perch. Especially at night, he curls up in his branches as close to the heat lamp as he can get! I periodically check the forecast in the Tanimbar Islands and it doesnít seem like it cools down much at night. Maybe Iíll just try it for a bit and see if there are any behavioral changes!

    Food wise, I think your plan is a good one. I wonít fast them, but offer less frequently. My Dum needs to catch up on some growth lost from being such a picky baby Although, eating her leftovers is making my scrub fat
