Default Video - Hognose Snake



Advertise Here

Almost stepped on a Hognose snake the other day while walking over to a shed here on the farm. The Hognose, aka Spreading Adder, is supposed to be harmless to humans. But, bites may swell.

As far as I know, nobody has ever died from a Hognose snake bite.


I usually see these around April - May, then rarely see them again until this same time next year.

When I was a little kid, maybe 10, I saw one of these. Scared the juices out of me when it puffed up and I killed it on the spot. Didn't want it around to endanger the dogs. Felt bad after I learned it wasn't poisonous.

They put on a good show!

My favorite was them playing dead because they really get into the part!

Once “dead” if you roll them back over they’ll flip back so they can be”dead” again.

Kev, I like that you educate us on snakes because I hate rats and mice. I would guess small snakes would eat roaches also.

One thing I disliked about working for/with farmers is they want to kill any snake they see along with many other things. Then they use poison on the rodents which gives stray cats a horrible death (if the cat was not already shot).

Thank you.

Pretty soon a chicken snake (rat snake) will show up in the chicken house. Hopefully I will get some video of it.

Last year I had a chicken snake visiting the chicken house and I left it alone. It may eat a few eggs, but hopefully it ate some rats and mice with those eggs.
