This is a state endangered species in New Hampshire. Occurrence records for hognose snakes are few and far between.

Bill, if you are able to send confirmation of the location of this snake or more precise coordinates, the information would be useful to NH Fish & Game's efforts to conserve and protect the species.

Information can be sent to Tyler.Mahard@wildlife.nh.gov

Or, sent in through Fish and Game's reporting program:
