Western Hognosed Snakes (Heterodon nasicus)

Hog-Nosed Snakes have always been a personal favorite. Easy to keep and gentle in nature, with males reaching an average of 18 inches in length and females around 24 inches. It's amusing to watch young westerns huff and puff while spreading their neck skin in a 'hood' reminiscent of cobras in a pointless threat display! All of ours will be heterozygous for various genetic traits. Click here to learn more/see adults.

Red Western Hognosed Snakes (Heterodon nasicus)

Specimens originating in NE Texas where the soils are bright red colored clays tend to match that coloration precisely. Our first specimens of the type hailed from Clay County, Texas in fact. But todays 'reds' are from a variety of locations. Specimens selected for the very brightest colors are often marketed as 'super reds' and carry much higher price tags!

What do all these numbers and stuff mean?

The description of each specimen is followed by the sex of the specimen, it's date of birth, a stock number identifying the specimen, and the selling price. Photos are of the exact specimen listed, most are taken inside a standard 8oz deli cup for size comparison, and are updated as time permits.

Understanding our stock numbers may prove helpful in identifying unrelated specimens:

  • F021-01M indicates a 2006 hatching (we started this code in 2001 with 'A', 2002 is 'B' and so on).
  • F021-01M indicates the clutch number for that year, and thus all specimens listed as F021- are from the same clutch.
  • F021-01M indicates this is the first male from that clutch. F021-03F would the third female from that clutch.

CB - Captive Bred, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from parents kept in captivity.

CH - Captive Hatched, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from a gravid wild-caught female.

WC - Wild-Caught. While all of our stock is produced here, some of it is produced from wild-caught adults that we maintain. We will occasionally sell some of the breeder animals as surplus.

LTC - Long Term Captive, usually followed by year of capture. Applies only to WC animals, indicates they have been maintained for a long period in captivity and are very well established.

50%, 66%, 100% - Percentage of likelihood the specimen is heterozygous for the listed trait.
