Title: Eastern Hog-nosed snake
Post by: Whittam on May 04, 2012, 09:08:21 pm
Came across 3 Eastern Hog-nosed snakes sunning themselves near Washago Ontario.  First 2 were very docile.....  second shot, as you can see was flattening its head and putting on quite a show.  Took a quick shot and left it alone!
Cheers Terry
Here are the first 2 sleeping!

This fellow was quite threatening as Hog-nosed snakes can be.  All a bluff!
