This is a pretty large hognose, very cool! Please add to the Center for SnakeConservation mission to help document all the snakes in the US. Thanks! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1202...
I saw one when i was a child and it just rolled over and played dead. I remember poking it with a stick and it did not move at all. I went away and came back about 15 minutes later and it was gone. I have not seen another one in the wild since then.
Not really it acted very calm. When my son ran up the snake finally slithered away.
Nice spotting! You should add it to the Midwest Reptile Study Mission.
cool spotting! Snakes are so hard to find.
Did it do anything once you got close? Hognos snakes exhibit amazing defensive strategies like hissing, spreading out their hood, striking, and even playing dead.
