Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Heterodon nasicus
Western Hognose Snake

Carroll Co., Illinois.
June 16, 2010

This little hognose was crawling out in the open on an exposed sand blow.  I've been looking for a nasicus for some time, and was please to find one in my home state.  It turned out to be a good year for finding these little prairie rooters - I saw a total of five between Illinois and Kansas.
