Corky the Western Hognose Snake, the Pet of the Day
Name: Corky
Age: Three months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Western Hognose Snake
Home: California, USA
 
   Introducing Corky, the Western Hognose snake. Her specific morph (coloring) is called anaconda. I don't know why it's called anaconda so just go with it. Anaconda Hognose snakes have less spots then regular Hognose snakes. Corky is a tiny baby as you can probably tell by the pictures. She was hatched June 30th. She's a friendly snake but is young so she still has a lot of time to calm down. Corky enjoys exploring her cage and sleeping in her cactus skeleton tube.

     You can see that she has a funny shaped snout. This is because in the wild they eat toads and they use their snout to uncover the toads, just like a pig uses his nose to uncover truffles! Western Hognoses are what you call a rear fanged venomous species of snake. They have 1 to 3 fangs in the back of their mouth. They are only venomous towards toads, frogs and lizards.

     Western Hognoses are very easy to care for and have a calm personality. They make great beginner snakes, just do lots of research. Hope you liked learning about Corky!
