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.

The Evans Hypo  (also called a Dutch Hypo) gene is not actually a Hypomelanistic gene at all, it is a form of T+ albino that is incompatible with the toffebelly and caramel lines of T+ Albino. It has richer colours than other lines of T+ Albino and when bred through the red lines of hognose (like ours) produces some of the most striking of the T+ albino variants.


*Please note: Virtually all our Hognose, are possible hets for various recessive morphs. They are only as listed as their visual morph, or guaranteed het.
