Western Hognose snake

There are venomous snakes, there are non-venomous snakes. Most people believe that one group can hurt you and the others can't. It's not that simple. Try not to generalize with reptiles and you will discover the truths. This is one of those harmless venomous snakes. She has rear-fangs for popping the toads that she likes to eat. She does not strike to inject venom. She has many other defenses if she were threatened. Please keep in mind, that animals bite for two reasons: for food and to protect themselves. Don't threaten them and don't offer your hand as food.
