Madagascan Hognose

Hognoses are so called because of their distinctive upturned nose. They use this nose for digging around in the soil to unearth the toads and frogs that are their natural prey. Is the largest of the Hognose family. Widespread habitat destruction in Madagascar has resulted in a reduction of most species of reptiles and amphibians in Madagascar. As a result, it is uncertain how long the Island nation can sustain wild caught exports.

DID YOU KNOW? Hognose snakes are especially famous for playing dead when threatened.
