My dog some how cornered a brown snake here in Raleigh, NC earlier this week. My wife not knowing what kind of snake it was put a bowl over it and one thing led to another and the snake has made it inside the house. It is a brown snake, a mature one from what I can tell at ~ 12 inches long. The question is, I need to get this guy back to his world. The problem is, it is only getting into the 40's during the day and into the 20's at night. Do I have to keep this guy all winter, or is there a strategy for releasing him in the winter?
Many thanks everyone!
