Hognose Snake Playing Dead

We took a trip to Southern Pines, NC to look for reptiles and amphibians and were pleasantly surprised to find a male and female pair of Eastern Hognose snakes (Heterodon platirhinos) right next to one another.  They both showcased their defense mechanisms of spreading their necks, mock striking, hissing, and eventually rolling over to play dead.  Isn’t God awesome for creating such an amazing animal!!
