Talking Meet pursey!!!

now pursey is one of my best friends and i am still a little frightened of him but we could make arrangements pursey is my western hognose and SUPER ADORABLE got him off the internet, by next season he would be ready to spawn, he might have a chance of 50%? albino in him and he hangs out with ball pythons (not my brother kngsnake you know why ) everyone thinks he looks like a rattlesnake and HE DOES has venom but not deadly (you know why am a little afraid ) but it is rare for hognoses to ever bite now these pics are pursey with my older brother's pinstripe
also these pics are from a fuji camera, good quality :

pursey the one above and scythe the one on the bottom

So adorable!! They're so cute! Thanks for the pics. (:
I'd love to get a snake, especially one that pretty! Sadly though, my parents forbid it.

is it because "the'll kill you if they get to big" >-> the hognose only grows to 2-4 feet, small in the snake world :P females will always be bigger. thanks and you welcome :3 i have some cute vids too:

Hognoses are cute! :) Don't worry..their fangs are in the back of their mouths, they can't even inject venom unless they chew on you for a while, and even then it's like a bee sting(some people don't even get affected that much by it), and as long as you follow his body movements you will learn when he is stressed or not. :) I've never been bitten by either of my snakes (yet) but I understand how you can be nervous at first. Took me a few weeks to really fall in love with my maru baby<3 :)

Might I say that is a stunning pinstripe ball python as well! (is it just pinstripe or is it a spinner? I can never tell!)

Hognoses are sweet! One of the few smaller snake species I plan to have :)

Grogeous! I love snakes, but I can't have them because of my mother and my ratties...I would hate for any accidents to happen. I also couldn't feed rats to a snake. :(

I want lizards, though. :)

Life.

well we have a snake that used to be scared of mice XD i think she got over it though, thanks you guys :) pursey is awsome i will love to breed him, it's just that we don't have a hognose female :P am not a professional at breeding snakes only my big brother knows :) i told him if he wants to breed pursey it's fine by me
also hognoses do not have a smooth feeling like pythons or kingsnakes or so there more bumpy feeling :)

thanks JBosley my brother is looking forward to spawning him :P i just love him (i call him baby cakes a lot LOL) but pursey is a calm boy (sometimes), and he loves to look around (he's very curious) i left him on my bed a while i was cleaning since he really had no where to go on my bed he mostly was moving around, until he pooped i put back XD
