 Considering a Hognose... Help?

Hi everyone :)

I currently have 2 ball pythons and am going to a reptile show at the end of this month to get something different. Hognose snakes are just too darn cute, and I’m really considering coming home with one! :)

I had a California King before the BPs, and the care seems to be the same as I remember for my King? Desert-like environment..small mice..little/no humidity?

I had no idea there were so many different kinds, either! My gosh! Anyone have any thoughts on a type I should be looking for??

Any thoughts/help/advice anyone is willing to give would be MUCH appreciated! :)

How much you’re looking to spend depends on what morph you can get. As far as species the Western is the easiest to keep. Just check out some care sheets and get the tank set up at least 24 hours before you bring it home. Good luck!

Thanks very much! There are a few vendors that are registered as attending the show that breed Westerns, so I’ll see what I can find! I’m so excited!! Going to get the tank and stuff this week! =D

Did you end up getting a hoggie? They are wonderful snakes. I have a 10 month old female and she is my baby. Post some pics if you have any. God bless,

Laura

I didn’t :( We got there an hour after the show had started and all the hoggies were gone by then already. There’s another show in July though, so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed!
God Bless you also :)
