    That's a question I have with some of my VFTs. I know they can tolerate being covered in snow for brief periods, but how cold can they go, and for how long without dying?

    I'm not exactly sure, but the ideal temperature for dormancy is around 33F to 40F, which is essentially refrigerator temperature.

    Got it, also, should I try to separate them now or wait until they are in dormancy?
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?
