Eastern Hog-nosed Snake Spotted

Eastern Hog-nosed Snake Spotted

The Eastern Hog-nosed snake is a threatened species in Ontario. During a fall hike recently in the Pinery, we spotted this young one lying in the leaves along the edge of a trail. We photographed it and then showed it to the Naturalists at the Visitor’s Centre. They asked us to fill out a ‘Species At Risk’ form and to upload an image to their site.

For more information about this wonderful creature, see below.

    What a find, Tricia. The pattern on this snake is amazing. I had no idea before reading your post and watching the video how variable the pattern can be. My daughter wonders how big your snake was 🙂
