Snakes do not technically hibernate, however cold-blooded animals such as snakes and turtles do not have the ability to keep warm during winter, so they spend the winter inactive or dormant, which is called brumation. Simba has stopped eating and we are not handling her for the rest of the winter. We will resume Wednesday feedings in the Spring.
