Snakes don't hybrinate..they brumate, or go through a state of brumation in the winter months. They are much less active than in the spring / summer but are not asleep or inactive. They don't roam for long distances, and since their metabolism is slowed down, they can go for 60-90 days without eating, but if food is close, they will still go after it. On warm winter days they will come out to bask for long periods of time. They're not seen as much during the winter, but it's not uncommon to find them during the fall and winter months.
