Question of the Week – Hognose Snake

Posted by romeethredge on March 28, 2014

Last week I had a snake photo and it was a Hognose snake aka Spreading Adder. They are pretty common here and cause no real harm to people. They like to eat frogs and toads, and do kind of look like a cobra when disturbed and hiss and flatten their necks. They will also play dead and flip over comically. This one had cloudy eyes apparently due to being close to shedding the old skin.

I had many correct answers and you can look in the comments question under the post last week to see some good information.



Here’s this week’s question. What is this?
