This snake deserves an award for playing dead.
Hognose snakes playing dead is a common defense. Even if you aren’t a fan of snakes this video is still pretty neat. Don’t worry, you’ll be safe just watching.
The reason this snake has its name is characterized by an upturned snout.
At 45 seconds it’s almost comical how the snake curls belly-up. The hognose was more than adamant at proving that it was dead.
I would suggest not trying this with other snakes. Heck, I’m not sure if I would even try it with a hognose snake. Nonetheless, this video was pretty cool.
