::Hi,
::I've been researching the "red" western hognose snake. Hopefully they will have a couple at the New York Expo next weekend.
::Basically, I've been debating between a hognose or a kenyan sand boa. Kenyans spend the whole day under the substrate. I've read the hognose's are a burying species...do they spend a lot of time covered under the substrate? This will be my first hognose purchase, please let me know of any helpful tips/websites.
::Thanks,
::Peter F.

:My hognose kind of varies. She usually spends all of feeding day out looking for her tasty pinkies I assume, the next two days burried, while she digests, and then the rest of the week is burried part of the day and out for part of the day. I have no trouble seeing her as she is not burried all of the time, and she is a very gentle and not to mention adorable little snake. She seems to like being held and will generally curl around a finger or two and watch tv with me (she is a big Lord of the Rings fan LOL). She eats well, though I did have to start feeding her live pinkies after she wouldn't eat frozen-thawed. All in all a wonderful little friend. I don't know anything about Sand Boas, but in my very biased opinion - go with the hognose :)
