Western Hognose by FantasticFennec Western Hognose by FantasticFennec
This is a photo of a Western Hognose Snake that I took at Planet Reptile.

Beautiful little snake. Totally chuffed I got the tongue out. One of my favourites from the day at Planet Reptile. ^.^

they arent poisonous. they will make the bit area swell badly. We had a biologist come out to see if it was the endangered one. They are pretty docile and very dramatic. This one was playing dead...I would have nominated him for the oscars if there was a snake category

I found an Eastern Hognose in my basement one day, very pretty orange snake. It was a baby and it played "dead" very dramatic!

Really? Wow, I can't imagine finding a poisonous snake anywhere near my house. The worst I've had is a grass snake in my garage.

Hognose snakes are so neat; especially the way they play dead by lying on their back

Great shot! :clap:
You can find them all over Texas, especialy the Hill Country, we call them Texas Rooters around here because how in some places you can start digging and almost immedately find many of them. Farmers like having them around because they help keep the population of mice under control and feed on small ratlesnakes and other more venomouse animals.

:) Thank you.
Wow, the most dangerous reptile we have here in England is the adder, and I've never seen a wild one in my life. I can't quite imagine digging around and finding a bunch of venomous snakes. xD Glad to hear that farmers like these guys, they do sound useful things to have around.

Your welcome! :w00t:
Its realy only when it gets cold that you have to wory about digging groups of them up because they sometimes nest together to keep warm during winter.

This is absolutely stunning. If I could critique this, I would praise the clarity of the picture, each individual scale pronounced and gleaming. The capture of the tongue is astounding. The focus on it, and even the spot of reflection in the middle of it. Brilliant, well done :D

Didn't expect the tongue to curve like that.
