Cobras in Virginia?!

Cobras in Virginia?!

Here's a picture of another hognose trick. Before playing dead, the eastern hognose will spread its neck into a hood just like a cobra. It hisses very loudly and acts very, very aggressive. But it is all just a show; the reality is the snake is completely harmless. If playing cobra doesn't scare its assailant away, that's when it reverts to playing dead as it did here.
