1. Make sure that your male and female snakes are in different vivariums before brumation. (The reptile equivalent to hibernation).
2. Feed your Corn Snakes twice as much as they normally eat, starting at the very beginning of September
3. Stop feeding your corn snakes for three to four weeks before the brumation period begins. (This is normally around the end of the year).
4. Gradually cool the temperature down to 61 degrees F over a two week period, being certain that their stomachs are completely empty.
5. Reduce lighting. When you’re at the end of the second week, there should be no lighting at all,
6. Previously, you should have been changing your Corn Snake drinking water on a daily basis, but now change the water twice a week. However, when changing the water, be careful not to disturb you snake, as the whole effect of the brumation period may be ruined.
7. After this period of brumation, warm your snakes slowly over a period of two weeks, until they reach their normal body temperature, (Around 85 degrees F, around early March).
8. You can now start feeding your snakes again.
9. Once the female has had her first shed after brumation, put your male Corn Snake in with her.
10. Leave snakes overnight to (hopefully!) Mate.
11. Return the male to his original enclosure and leave for a few days, After this time, you can then return him to the female enclosure, and repeat this process up to five times if necessary,
12. Be prepared that a female will shed her skin around 10 to 14 days before she
lays her eggs. If you notice this, fill a box with sphagnum moss, cut a hole in it
for the eggs and leave in the female’s vivarium. It must be big enough to fit her
13. When you find eggs in the box, keep them the right side up before they go into
the incubator -
14. Leave the incubator temperature at 80 degrees F. The corn snake eggs should hatch after around 10 weeks or so.
