Hognose Snake -May 14, 2007

As I am going from the dining hall to the nature center in a golf cart I look down and see this 7 inch Hognose snake.

I love the way these snakes flatten out their head, putting out their hood to make themselves look bigger.

I didn’t frighten this one enough to make it rollover on its back to play dead, which they do just like oppossums.

Hognose snakes love toads.  Seeing this guy(or gal) makes me think that the toads must be out in full force.
