I have wanted hogs for a long time.. they are just so cute with their little upturned noses and rattlesnake mimic coloration. So I finally got a pair of westerns. Introducing Miss Piggy and her mate, that is yet to be named.

they are very nice hognoses nice coloration and pattern on boath. and the name is priceless lol. but if by chance one were to bite you do not let it chew. since they do have a mild venom and can cause some local swelling and pain. but they are usually pretty calm lol. good luck with your new babies. thanks

Thanx guys :)

I just got them the little more than a week ago, took the pics as I was unbagging them and putting them into their new homes. They are about 3 years old. They were housed together before they were sent to me, so after a few days to be sure everyone was behaving as they should I reintroduced them. Well if all goes well I should have eggs in 6 weeks, because within an hour they were breeding.. and it lasted for a couple hours. I do plan to house them seperately though.. I do not want to risk some freak incidence of one deciding they want to be a snake eater!

Oh I know about their bites.. and I would never even think of letting it chew on me. I am very careful with all my herps, if someone is grouchy(shows any signs of defensive behavior) they are left alone.

My kids and I decided on a name for the male too. He is now called Pug, he has the upturned nose, all he is missing is the cute curly tail :)
