These charming little snakes are native to the USA. Their name originates from their upturned nose which is used to burrow for food or shelter. When threatened the hognose can produce a loud hiss and form a cobra-like hood. If this bluff fails their next resort is to play dead. They are active, inquisitive and if handled regularly make excellent pets. It is worth noting that this species is rear-fanged and mildly venomous.
This section showcases our current selection of Western Hognose morphs, all the photos are of our animals.
WHY CANT I BUY ONLINE?
Because we are so committed to animal welfare we feel it would be inappropriate and irresponsible to list live animals as if they were just another product. We ask that you contact the store on 01276423137 so that we can ensure animals are being sent to a suitable home. You can still purchase animals via a digital invoice or Paypal, we simply prefer the sale of live animals to be a little bit more sensitive than general internet shopping allows.
