Hey everyone, I've had this idea for a while now to use Wine Coolers as hibernation chambers for my salamanders. I don't trust mini fridges at all because my worms and other food died by freezing in them. When I think about putting my tigers in one of those, Im like "Hell no!"

Most wine coolers have manual or digital thermostats that range from 45-60 degrees. Why the hell would people want to freeze their wine? They don't! So I figure if you just pay attention to the temp, the salamanders won't freeze either. This seems to be a preferable range for hibernation, right?

I was talking to Mike_g on AIM and he found this site with lots of great smaller models.

Check it out. What do you all think of this?
