    For those of you who breed snakes, how do you accomplish your winter cooling period? There is much debate over whether the word "brumation" is technically correct, but I believe that it is and will use that term from here forward. I am in the process of acquiring pairs and trios of a handful of species that I am partial to. I am not going into full-time business selling reptiles. I only want to do something that I love and possibly offset some of my hobby's costs. I am looking for a safe and reliable method to build/buy a brumation chamber. A cool, dark corner in the basement is not an option for me as I have no basement. I have available space, but cannot maintain a cool enough temparature there without artificial means. In searching the internet I have found that some people use wine chillers, some use refrigerators, larger operations use appliances designed to chill an entire small room for wine storage, etc. How do you all do it? Thank you in advance for the help!
