So we are gonna get our first bout of truly bad winter weather with lots of ice and snow. They talking about possible power loss and major highway closures. So I’m looking for last minute emergency advice.
Anything is helpful but these are the key things.
How long feesibly can colubrids, sand boas, and balls go without heat? This includes power loss in the middle of winter heat as well as being in a warm place but no access to heat mats ect.
Pillowcases. What’s the info on keeping snakes in them? What kind? How long can they stay?
If snakes go without any heat or proper heat then what’s the correct way to reintroduce it?
Anything I need to be wary of in offering water to snakes without heat? What about after or during reintroducing heat?
Keep in mind this is beginning as we speak. While we havent lost power we cannot get proper warmers, tubs, ect. We have pillow cases and a tub to put everyone in once in their cases but that’s about it. We could maybe have a single heat mat and thermostat in said tub but that’s an unknown at this moment. My job is amazing in letting us bring the snakes there (thankfully they have a generator so no worries about loss of electricity there) but dunno if they’d be okay with them being plugged in on a heat mat since that would put the tub in the open so to speak.
