Did you find it that way or did you take the shovel to it? Its a hognose....southern I would guess, based on your location.

Hognose for sure but I'm thinking more western or Mexican.How come the blood?

Looks like someone took a flat edged shovel to it's neck, with that straight line of damaged scales on the first left side dorsolateral blotch. What a cryin shame.

That "was" a nice looking hognose. I too, am curious if you are on the holding end of that shovel in the picture? Poor little guy.

Shame to see that animal was killed. So beautiful too... Hoggy as the others said, dunno which kind though.

It's either a Western or a Mexican hognose and either way, it's perfectly harmless. Unless you are a toad. They like to eat toads.

"Rope This One" is pretty obviously not the user's full name. Any chance of an IP check against other logins?

The IP localizes to Lufkin, Texas and there is no match to any other user.

Poor beautiful Hognose. Batter a harmless snake to death and ask questions later. Maroons.
