Status of the plains hognose snake (Heterodon nasicus nasicus) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the plains hognose snake, a subspecies of the western hognose snake and listed as a species that may be at risk of decline in Alberta. Current understanding of the population levels of the plains hognose snake in Alberta is limited by the secretive nature of the species and a lack of search effort to date. This report has been prepared as a review of current information relevant to determining the status of the snake. It is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
