Earlier this week, I came across this little guy in a local pet store.
Compared to every one of my others, he seem to be a little... abnormal... (in terms of color/pattern/belly/sides etc) ?

Here are some pictures, let me know what you all think.

That's a mexican hognose. They tend to be a bit more huffy and puffy. It's definetly a male as well. I will warn you, they are very addicting.

Good call... well that WOULD be why it looked abnormal for a western... Well, that's unfortunate (and now I feel like a moron... it didn't even cross my mind that it wasn't a western)... I was excited for a bit there...

Western or not - still looks cool.
