Warning-Snake Inside

Friends, thought i would warn anyone with a weak heart and fear of snakes that this post contains a hog-nosed snake in the spring.  This fellow was sitting by the road and our dog took a wide detour around him while the snake hissed at him.  We seldom see the big boy dog afraid of anything, so we were startled by his attitude.  These snakes can expand their neck region and hump up off the ground to present a scary sight.  He does have a pretty hoggy nose, don’t you think?  The image below shows this snake in a more aggressive pose, raised and ready to strike.  He is not poisonous but has biting teeth.  til Tomorrow MJ
