Yes,sometimes (snakes living in warmer tropics and subtropics has been seen to remain active throughout the year.) they do. Cold has a narcotic effect on them. As we all know snakes being cold blooded,their body temp changes with the outer ambient temp.Extreme cold thus could stop all the enzymatic activities which in turn could hamper all vital bodily metabolic processes essential for sustaining life on earth.That's why snakes undergo hibernation (a practical dead like state with lowest of metabolic activity) until and unless the period of stress or cold is over.

Will a snake hibernate in your house?

Yes, snakes can hibernate inside of any enclosure including your home. Usually, the snake would need a source of food. Sometimes snakes accidentally find there way into a crawl space or basement. Larger snakes can climb, therefore moving up stairs. If you find a snake don't touch it. Call animal control or your local vet or sheriff's ffice for assistance. Evaluation of the source of entry is important to eliminate this from happening. Simply closing gaps or wholes and removal of natural snake habitat will help in prevention.
