    Well, two are down now, in the mid-temp range of brumation, and the other 3 are going down today!

    I know a lot of people like to start their brumations a LOT earlier, to get the first babies of the season, but I wanted a little more weight on mine before I put them down.

    I removed the heat from their tank 2 weeks ago, and now they're in a spare room, unheated, at about 65 degrees. After a week or two there, they'll be going in the attic for a few weeks, as long as temps are staying in the 40s or better. Then back up in the spare room, then back to their enclosures, and hopefully, BABIES!!!!!
