*head spins* Too much then/now to remember....
: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.
