Congratulations Lisa, this beautiful series is our Spotting of the Day!

"Check out this beautiful Dusty Hognose Snake (Heterodon gloydi), our Spotting of the Day! Heterodon is a genus of harmless colubrid snakes found in North America. They are commonly known as hognose snake because of their most distinctive feature: an upturned snout, clearly visible in this shot. Due to their appearance and impressive defensive display, hognose snakes are unfortunately often mistaken for venomous species and killed".
