:Hmmm the last I knew...

The California desert is a viable place for them to thrive. I also have not heard of them making it this far west. As for the snake that was found, they generally do not strike. They give a fake strike with their mouth closed. As for where this talk all started, the venom, hognoses are mildly venomous. They are rear fanged. The venom is only harmful to small animals i.e. anything they eat. If a hognose bites a human, it would have to hold on for an extended period of time to inject any venom. If this were to happen, which is highly unlikely, atmost, there may be some discoloration. The hognose snake is one of the most docile, friendly, and cute snakes available.
