My husband and I were driving down the country road when we almost ran over a fat snake. I love snakes so he backed up the car for me to investigate. The snake raised up and enlarged like a cobra then high tailed it away from me. It looked like a cobra to me. But we took the photo and showed it around church and the locals call it a "spread head". But it is really and eastern hog nose. It is a good snake in that it eats toads. That what where it was headed, a large pond down the hill filled with toads. The snakes are out in full force this time of the year. Good to be educated about them out here in the woods.
