I currently have my two western hognoses down for brumation, and have for about a month now. They were put into brumation on December 15th, after being given 2-3 weeks off of food.
However, I’m unsure as to how much longer I should leave them down before bringing them back up. I’ve heard of some people who don’t brumate at all, and other sources say anywhere from 1-4 months.
I would like to breed them, my female is around the 250 gram mark, male is around 70 grams (at least last time I weighed them before putting them down for brumation, would need to weigh them again to see how their weight is doing)
There aren’t many hognose breeders in my area (only one that I’ve heard of), so if I could get this figured out and nailed down I might be onto something here. Advice would be greatly appreciated!
