Hey, I recently brought home a Brown Snake (identified correctly, not to worry) on Christmas Eve. I know taking animals home from the wild isn't always the best idea, but it was hella cold and I didn't want him to freeze to death. (natural order I know but I just couldn't sleep at night if I left him.) I live in Connecticut, and it was 60 degrees or so the day before, so I think he thought it was just time to come out of hibernation. I brought him home and stuck him in a big plastic bin, (about knee height, little more than two feet by one foot) with sand in the bottom and some leaf litter and sticks from the backyard and a small cap of water. He perked up that night, named him Eve, and was crawling around in good temper doing his little tongue thing. I looked online to figure out what he ate (slugs and worms and such) and went to ****'s yesterday to pick up something for him to eat. It's still pretty new to his new home, (I'd release him but it's so cold outside, and snowed yesterday) so I figure he won't be eating until he gets settled? But he's looking kind of skinny compared to Christmas Eve and was a little pale yesterday. I bought Canadian Nightcrawlers? They're enormous and I think he's scared of the suckers, but I sliced a little one into a quarter for him and he still didn't seem to interested. Am I freaking out for no reason, or should I really be concerned? He's still as chipper as before, though he isn't doing his tongue thing anymore. I unfortunately don't have any heat lamps or anything for him, picking him up on the fly as I did, but I looked online at some care guides and it said that Brown snakes don't really need them or they get toasted? It's nice and warm in my bedroom (and he's not too close to the heater) is it too cold? I unfortunately don't have any way to measure the heat in here, other than the fact it's a lovely room temperature and I'm in a tank top, that's the best judge I have.(high sixties?) Help!
