Eastern Hognose Snake

Photo By Todd Ratermann

The eastern Hognose Snake has two interesting ways to protect itself. The first thing it does when it feels threatened is to spread it's head and make itself look like a cobra. If that fails to deter it goes into a fake death roll, then ends up on it's back playing dead. If you turn him right side up, he immediately turns himself upside down again.
