I didn't know that either. I just thought it may be true after I viewed your link, so I googled "Hog nose snake puff adder"

the links, my father from Alabama grew up knowing that the hognose snake of the southeast was in fact called the " spreading adder . And the common skink while a juvenile which had the blue tail was poisonous while it had the blue. So, if one was to capture the skink and break off the blue part of the tail, the skink lizard was not poisonous anymore ! :rofl:
