For tonight's #statebysnake , here is Connecticut and the lovely, goofy little Eastern Hognose, now sporting some ink! .

It's time for today's #statebysnake installment, and Connecticut, you're up! While I usually think of the cities and towns in CT, there's a surprising amount of wilderness.  This state is nestled in the southern end of New England, where venomous snakes are rare (and mostly endangered or extinct). CT has 2 (out of 14 species), and while (as stated) they are uncommon, reports of them definitely are not. The reason? This little guy! Many people who come across the diminutive Eastern Hog-nosed Snake are alarmed by their over-the-top defensive moves (twisting, flattening their head into a cobra-like hood, flipping over and playing dead, mouth agape). Those unfamiliar with these antics often incorrectly assume they're venomous. .
.
I'm in love with the little hog-nosed face (though trying to draw something that already doesn't look real is a challenge ), and I'm hoping once people get a chance to really look at them, they'll love them too. And for goodness sake, venomous or not, please leave them be - snakes are so much more helpful than many people think. And, super cute. Especially this dude. .

My buddy @jmiller1363 getting a good look at the big female Eastern Hognose he spotted in ANF this past spring. Josh is a big dude (6’6”) and there is a little forced perspective going on here, but not that much. ———————————————————————————#easternhognose #heterodonplatirhinos #heterodon #hognose #herp #halloweenhognose #herpsofflorida #herpsofinstagram #snake  #herpinghopperboyz #snake #reptile #herpsofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #herpetofauna  #herpetology #snakesofinstagram

There are a lot of things in life worth #gettingyourhandsdirty . Saving a very stuck #snake is one of them. I got a call about this poor girl stuck by her head in a wire grate and with come precise wire cutter work and physical discomfort (for both parties) , I got her out! Swipe for the happy ending! Sadly, another beautiful #easternhognose met a gruesome and untimely death at the hands of a neighbor before I arrived. At least this girl is free and happy now. I implore you all - don’t kill snakes. I can give you a thousand reasons, but bottom line, don’t do it. #hognosesnake #hognose #snakerescue #texassnakes #bekind #animalrescue #housecall #heterodonplatirhinos #heterodon #danielleinman

While working in one of our field sites a few weeks ago, we had an incredibly lucky day for herps! We stumbled across 2 Eastern Hognose snakes (Heterodon platirhinos)! And both were found within 15 minutes of each other! The first individual was a gorgeous gray colour and was spotted by @brendan6744 (the second photo in the series). A short while later, I spotted the second individual (the first photo), who had stunning yellow and black colouration! 😍 These snakes mark the 3rd and 4th hognoses we've seen this summer so far! A new field season record! .

It’s that time of year again! This beautiful female hog is nesting, using her signature upturned “hog-nose” to tunnel her way deep into the dunes and lay her clutch of eggs. By the time late August/September rolls around, we’ll hopefully be seeing a bunch of beautiful neonate hogs emerging and ready to pop some toads

Spent a rainy day on Cape Cod today with the family.  We had hopes of finding hognose snakes and box turtles.  Ended up finding one of each - which counts as a success!  We also saw a painted turtle attempting to dig a nest for its eggs.  #hognosesnake #heterodonplatirhinos #boxturtle #boxturtlesofinstagram #easternboxturtle #terrapenecarolina #easternpaintedturtle #capecod

A large eastern hognose snake (Heterodon platirhinos) flipped under a large sign with @naturewithgabe a few weeks ago. This was definitely one of my favorite finds this year, such an impressive animal. Super unexpected as well.

This curly tail belongs to an Eastern Hog-nosed Snake (Heterodon platirhinos).
The texture of a snake's scales is a helpful tool in identifying a species. Scales can be smooth or keeled (ridged down the centre), like those in the photo. Scale texture can even help you identify a shed skin!

It's always a personal accomplishment when you move these snakes off a road, and you're gentle enough so they don't flare up or fein death... this was the second Eastern Hognose (Heterodon platirhinos) we encountered this field season! 🐍 .

I hear it is #nationalselfieday, so I'll compromise by posting this photo of myself with a whopper Eastern Hog-nosed Snake that @ryanmwolfe and I found the other week. This female is pushing the species record at a length of 114 cm! The Eastern Hog-nosed Snake is listed as Threatened in Ontario and was handled under necessary permits. #easternhognosedsnake #hognosesnake #heterodonplatirhinos #fieldwork #conservation #wildlife #wild #record #snake #snakesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #reptile #nature #ontarionature #naturephotography #naturelovers #science #womeninscience #herpetology

One more shot of the in-shed hog. Just had surgery today so hopefully I’ll be back up on my feet by later this week and can see some more of these amazing snakes when I get the chance

The defensive display of Eastern hognose snakes occasionally earns them erroneous nicknames such as “spreading adder” or “puff adder,” which just promotes fear; puff adders are obviously not closely related to hognose snakes at all. The defensive display of these snakes is extensive and well-known, ranging from simply huffing and puffing (as this one did) or famously feigning death, complete with rolling upside down and gaping their mouth. They very rarely bite, using it only as a last resort. Being opisthoglyphous (or rear-fanged) colubrids, they have a mild venom that is used to subdue amphibian prey and teeth that are designed to “pop” said defensively-inflated prey. On LI, this implies Fowler’s toads, a common amphibian found throughout Long Island with frequency. These toads are, in many ways, one of the keys to the continued persistence of Eastern hognose snakes on LI

Eastern hog from a couple of weeks ago. This color phase is pretty boring, and the fact that it was nearing its shed didn’t help. Still...a hog’s a hog. Love these snakes! #easternhognosesnake #easternhognose #heterodonplatirhinos #snakesofinstagram #snake #widlifephotography

Found this gorgeous (and very dramatic) Eastern Hog-Nosed Snake when I was visiting MO last week. So many people upon seeing this kind of display would run and tell a bunch of b.s. lines about being chased by copperhead/cobra but it took me .2 seconds to realize who I was about to step on because being observant and learning the basics of snake ID requires minimal effort. Really. Also just to be clear that is Wiley’s heavy panting in the background and not mine even though I was just as excited to see this cutie. #alwayswatchyourstep #easternhognosedsnake #heterodonplatirhinos #herpetology #snakefriends #♥️

Barrier Island eastern hognose from today. These incredible snakes differ drastically from mainland hognose snakes due to insular dwarfism; while mainland hognose snakes may average over 3 feet, these small snakes reach only 2 feet and under in length. Eastern hognose snakes were considered to be extinct on Long Island in 1996, until 2001 when a population was rediscovered at Brookhaven National Lab. Since the initial rediscovery, subsequent isolated populations have been rediscovered across Long Island, although they are perpetually all in decline as the land continues to be rapidly developed. The small, clinging populations are surrounded on all sides by rapid industrialization and urban sprawl. Their scarcity and resilience allowed them to survive in the unforgiving environments they were forced into by human persecution. These miniature hognose snakes are a phenomenal example of the marvel that is evolution and adaptation. They managed to persevere in hostile environments, feeding only on Fowler’s toads, in order to cling onto Long Island. They are listed as threatened in New York State but certainly deserve conservation efforts in order to ensure their continued survival

The Eastern Hog-nosed Snake (Heterodon platirhinos) is a Threatened species in Ontario. Their defining characteristic is their upturned snout, which is used for excavating sandy soils to create burrows and foraging for food. #easternhognosedsnake #hognosesnake #heterodonplatirhinos #snake #snakes #speciesatrisk #nature #naturelovers #ontario #canada #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #macrophotography #macro #canon #canonphotography #herpetology

Can you see my happiness radiating through this photo? 😍 On the very first day of nest searching this field season, I was lucky enough to stumble across this absolutely stunning Eastern Hognose snake (Heterodon platirhinos)! It was a real privilege to observe this snake in its natural environment, rather than helping one off a busy road 😅 .

#EasternHognoseSnake found in a wetland a few weeks back. This is one of two seen in a large wetland complex, unusual habitat by textbook standards for this species. However, I’ve observed a few of these snakes coming out of wetlands in the past and I think they are likely hunting breeding amphibians. #HeterodonPlatirhinos

A "dead" eastern hognose (Heterodon platirhinos) from last week. This gal was swabbed as part of a statewide survey for snake fungal disease in Indiana. She quickly came back to life and went on her way. Always a  rewarding experience when you find a hognose!

Enough birds already. Hoggies are my favorite local snake species, and this was the most beautiful individual I've ever seen. After collecting some video data, I took the chance to get some pictures.

Thought we were going to get skunked yet again by the Sandhills, but this fierce little thing decided to grace us with her presence. We photographed her for 10 minutes without ever laying a hand on her, and then she went on her way.

《Texas Cobra ? 🐍 》
My husband caught a snake and asked me if he could keep it as a pet. 
It hissed loudly at first, also tried to bite, but with mouth closed, almost like a high speed head-butt😂....however, it had one last trick up to its sleeve, it pooped 🤢...ewww.
My husband asked me if I want to hold it.  Of course my answer was “No!” This is not a cobra, but a harmless Eastern Hognosed snake.  They burrow and hunt for their meals in the dirt, toads most often fall prey, so do frogs and salamanders.
Their enlarged adrenal glands enable them to eat poisonous toads. (Wikipedia)

《#東部豬鼻蛇 》
我老公在河邊抓了一條蛇給我看他說好可愛可不可以帶回家當寵物?
這條蛇先是模仿眼鏡蛇把頭變扁,發出嘶嘶聲,試著咬,拿頭撞他,但它使出最後的絕招竟然是⋯⋯屎尿亂噴🤢
忽然我老公竟然問我想不想拿這條臭蛇照張像留紀念😂。
這是一條東部豬鼻蛇,無毒,很滑稽,德州愛蛇人俱樂部最喜歡的蛇之一。聽說當它遇到想抓它吃的動物時,它還會把舌頭伸出來吊在嘴邊,翻肚皮,屎滾尿流的裝死。

Tough guy showing off his hood and making noise 🐍 #easternhognosesnake #heterodonplatirhinos
One of the Eastern Hogs from last week. Gape game strong.

Heterodon platirhinos, Eastern Hognose Snake - In its defensive position where it widens its neck like a Cobra and makes puff noises/lunges its head.  It mainly feeds on Anaxyrus fowleri, Fowler's toad in pine forests. #heterodonplatirhinos  #heterodon #easternhognose #easternhognosesnake #capehenlopenstatepark

Eastern Hognose Snake- Heterodon platirhinos

Over a decade of searching, I finally found one of my favorite snakes. I have held hundreds of pickled specimens as an undergrad for research, but no luck on seeing one in the wild. I found this guy on a morning hike a few miles from home.

Another shot of the eastern hognose (Heterodon platirhinos) from a couple weeks ago. This one played dead, spreaded it's neck, hissed, and hit me with the front of it's mouth, but didn't strike. Such a cool species, I'm hoping that I'll see more some time this year.

In-situ Eastern Hognose Snake - Heterodon platirhinos (Latreille in Sonnini & Latreille, 1801) flipped underneath tin at one of my favorite sites. Had a fantastic day running around Maryland’s Western Shore with @eastcoast_herper yesterday. We found plenty of good snakes but not our target species the Coastal Plains Milk Snake despite good conditions and plenty of artificial cover.

As found spotted hognose from 2015, there is another one coiled up about 3 feet away.
