Rare sighting of cobra-like snake at Brazos Bend State Park


You never know what you could come across when floodwaters recede. 

Brazos Bend State Park officials say they had one of their rarer sightings of an eastern hognose snake crossing Creekfield Trail.

This beautiful snake can vary in colors like yellow, gray, brown, olive, red, or in this case, orange. 

When threatened, these snakes will raise their head puff out to appear larger, and flatten out the skin around their neck to look like a cobra. 

The hognose snakes get their name from their upturned snout which is used for digging in the dirt, sand, or leaf-litter.
