Do snakes hibernate?
No. They brumate which is the reptilian version of hibernation. The difference is that animals that hibernate (bears, and squirrels for example) sleep the entire time without waking up until spring. Reptiles will occasionally wake up and eat. The major difference affecting how the animals react is the metabolic functions. A hibernating animal reduces its metabolic function down to near zero while a brumate reptile slows it down but not as severely.
