An Eastern Hognose in a defense display.
A Western Hognose snake, not quite coiled up, but probably pretty alert.
My inspiration for sharing these two today really is in thanks to mk, who posted a snake in this very thoughtful and well written but not snake oriented thread and katakowsj, who asked what kind of snake it was, prompting me to guess, very wrongly I might add. Though in my defense I very much admitted I was guestimating and was in no way certain and was really hedging my bets. So . . . there.
Here's hoping you're all having a beautiful weekend.
