Question Winter for a toad...

I keep my Bufo bufo in the shed in a large box with soil and leaves.
I hand feed him earth worms every few days, he eats less now its got colder.
I would like to keep him in my bedroom so feeding and interacting is easier.
I am inclined to keep him in the shed where it is more of a natural cold winter climate.
What are peoples thoughts on keeping him warmer indoors over winter..?

Well, he'll grow more and faster if he's up during the winter. I took a baby Bufo Bufo/Fowleri Hybrid (I THINK its a hybrid, I cant tell which it is for sure) inside since he was still not tunneled in the "Toad House" outside. Its essentially a big hole next to our house where they've lived for a LONG time. He was still dragging himself along and not burrowed a day or two before/after a snow storm. I can't remember which. So I brought him in and he's quite gluttonous.

I'm sorry, I meant Bufo Americanus/Fowleri Hybrid
