View Full Version : Red Eastern Hognose!

My step-son caught this little guy running across the highway here in town, and brought him home to me. I love the little thing, but I know someone who loves them more, so he's going to be heading that way soon. He's pretty calm for being wild caught. Hasn't tried to bit, or play dead, but he will flatten his head out, and squirm a little. He's pretty calm after a minute in my hand though, and just hangs out there. He's already eaten a few frogs I caught too! I'll prolly try a pinky before he ships out.

WOW, I didn't know that Easterns looked so much like Westerns at that age. The ones in this area look a lot different.

I'm going by info I could find online. I could be wrong, but going by the colors and markings, and info I found about local hognose, i came up with it being an Eastern. :)

The little guy is nice though. Almost sad I promised him away. hehehe

Sorry Alisha, but that little girl has been gone for a long time now.
