image: Plains Western Hognose Snake

July 23, 1805

The Plains Western Hognose snake has a sharp upturned and pointed snout with a stout body and a broad neck. The top of the snake has many different colors, tan, brown, gray, or yellowish gray with distinct or somewhat faded series of dark blotches down the back and two or three rows of side spots. This snake is very cool because it burrows into loose soil to escape hot or cold conditions.
