These are a small terrestrial snake species from South America. Despite their common name, these animals are completely unrelated to the more commonly seen Western Hognose from North America. Theses interesting little snakes exhibit 2 major examples of convergent evolution (meaning unrelated species evolving similar forms despite being unrelated and from different places). They have an upturned snout used for burrowing just like the Western Hognose Snake (Heterodon nasicus); and they also exhibit three banded colouration of red, white and black which, like the milk snakes, is an attempt to mimic the venomous coral snakes found in the same part of the world. Their care is relatively simple but they do not appreciate excessive handling.
