Hognose Snake Playing Dead


Occurred on May 5, 2020 / Hayward, Wisconsin, USA

Info from Licensor: "While working on enhancing Whitetail deer habitat in northern Wisconsin, we came across a hognose snake working his way through the leaves. When we reached out to interact with it, the snake began to play dead, so we decided to video exactly how they use this defense to try to trick a would-be predator."
