The western hognose snake (Heterodon nasicus) is a species of non-venomous colubrid native to North America. Western hognose snakes are relatively small, stout-bodied snakes. The species is non-venomous.
These snakes get their common name from the modified rostral (nose) scale that is formed in an upturned manner, providing a very "hog-like" look. Additionally, this adaptation makes these snakes adept burrowers.
