Hognose Snake

Heterodon platirhinos


Just a couple of feet long with dark brown designs...not diamonds.


He was out sunning himself on the gravel. When we came up on him he coiled and then flattened his head and lifted it off the ground like a cobra. From a distance we thought he was a small rattler, but there was no rattle.
