Default Do P. Cinereus require colder temperatures in the winter?

Hi,

We have a pair of P. Cinereuses, and this will be our first winter with them. Is it necessary to lower their temperature during the winter months to simulate natural conditions, or will they be fine if conditions remain constant?

Thanks!

They will be fine with stable temperatures. Reducing the temp is really only necessary to stimulate breeding.
