Albino Western Hognose CB2017

£45.00 (Fixed shipping cost)

Product Description

Western hognose snakes are a relatively small, stout-bodied snake. Their colour and pattern can be highly variable. Males are considerably smaller than females, with adult lengths rarely exceeding 15–20 inches (38–51 cm). These snakes get their common name from their modified nose scale that is formed in an upturned manner, providing a very "hog-like" look. This nose adaptation makes these snakes adept burrowers.

The species is non-venomous and rear fanged though they very seldom bite. They are primarily diurnal and typically docile, though if threatened they may flatten their neck, hiss, and make mock strikes if harassed. Occasionally, if stressed enough, they even play dead, although it is more common that they will flatten their heads out, some individuals may puff up, filling their throats with air. 

In the wild the hognose will typically feed on amphibians, typically toads but will also eat small lizards and rodents. Captive Bred specimens will readily eat rodents appropraitely sized for the size of the snake.
