    Hognose Snake
    Heterodon nasicus
    Common names for this species include western, texas or prairie hognose snake, blow snake, bluffer, faux viper, spoonbill snake, spreadhead snake, and Texas rooter.
    The western hognose snake occurs from southern Canada throughout the United States to northern Mexico. It frequents areas with sandy or gravelly soils, including prairies, river floodplains, scrub and grasslands, semi-deserts and some semiagricultural areas
    Western hognose snakes are relatively small, stout-bodied snakes
    although most specimens appear much like rattlesnakes to the untrained eye, which appears to be defensive mimicry
    Males are considerably smaller than females, with adult lengths rarely exceeding 15–20 inches
    These snakes get their common name from the modified rostral (nose) scale that is formed in an upturned manner, providing a very "hog-like" look
    Additionally, this adaptation makes these snakes adept burrowers
    The species is non-venomous, but possesses a potentially irritating saliva that may cause symptoms like slight swelling and itching
    The extremely rare bite from this rear-fanged snake is not regarded as of medical importance to humans.
    The western hognose snake is primarily diurnal. It is typically a docile snake (though known to be highly aggressive in some individuals
    Diurnality is a plant or animal behavior characterized by activity during the day, with a period of sleeping, or other inactivity, at night
    In the wild, they feed predominately on amphibians, such as large and medium-sized tree frogs, as well as small or medium-sized toads and small lizards
    Western hognose snakes have been observed in copulation as early as February and March (breed)
    They are oviparous, with females laying 4-23 elongate, thin-shelled eggs in June–August
    Oviparous animals are animals that lay eggs, with little or no other embryonic development within the mother.
    The eggs take approximately 60 days to hatch. Hatchlings are 13–23 cm
