There are some good posts here...
Fridges have MUCH MORE THAN ENOUGH AIR for brumating a few colubrids...They don't consume much air, especially when they're shut down.
BUT, as Invictus points out... most fridges get too cold (for some species)
Cal Kings that are subjected to 3 months of temps in the high 30's and 40's can end up messed up in the Spring.(I've seen it)
Try to keep Temps above 50F. This can be done by turning up all the adjustment thermostats, by cracking the door, or by putting the entire unit on a separate thermostat, which is then put inside.
