Heterodon nasicus - Western Hognose(d) snake
Dusty Hognose (Heterodon n. nasicus)
Plains Hognose (Heterodon n. gloydi)
Mexican Hognose (Heterodon n. kennerlyi)

Thats how it used to be... Now its just Plains (Heterodon n. nasicus) with "Dusty" being a locality variant, and Mexican (Heterodon n. kennerlyi) with the plains generally being called "Western" in the hobby... but technically the whole species is called western but we won't go there :) Basically there wasn't much doubt that the Mexs were different from the plains, but as far as I know they are still the same species.

About all I can say is that the snake in question is a Western (aka plains) but I couldn't tell you what locality.

:I apologize if I'm totally wrong here, but I believe there is now only one species of Western.

:The Mexican is totally different though, and as far as I know was never considered a Western.
