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 Ghost Morph is a combination of the Axanthic gene along with the Hypo gene, this is however the true hypo gene, not to be confused with the T+ Albino variant that goes by the name of the Evans or Dutch hypo. The Axanthic morph is a recessive gene that means they lack the red and yellow pigments meaning they have a greyscale / black and white appearance.

*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.
