View Full Version : Here's my Hoggy!

Here's Snakey, my genericly named western hognose. She's about 30" long and eats a hopper and a fuzzy every 3 weeks (give or take a few days). She's in a 36" x 24" 24" terarrium with sand as the substrate, a wood log to hide in and under in both the warm and cold sides. For beauty,k I added a plastic desert plant.

The pillow case is what I'm using to lure her out until my new snakehook arrives. She's sort of territorial inside the cage, but calms down immensly when taken out.
