Heterodon platirhinos (Eastern Hognose Snake)
Colorado County, Texas - Spring 2014
This little hognose was found thermoregulating under tin.
Unlike most snakes, hognoses don't seem to like artificial cover sitting tight over their bodies. The majority of my hognose observations have either been on the road, or under cover that was elevated above the ground to provide sufficient crawl space for the snake without it touching the bottom of the cover object.
