There are enlarged ungrooved teeth near the rear of the upper jaws. The maximum total length is about 90 centimeters, but most individuals are less than 65 centimeters.

Eggs are smooth and elongate usually 26 to 38 millimeters by 14 to 23 millimeters in length and breadth.

Marked individuals in Kansas were usually recovered during the same year within a few hundred meters of their capture site; occasionally individuals moved a kilometer or more between years PlattHammerson Little specific information for the state is available.
They have been reported in areas of sagebrush-grassland habitat Dood and near pine savannah in grassland underlain by sandy soil ReichelHendricks In other locations, their apparent preference for arid areas, farmlands, and floodplains, particularly those with gravelly or sandy soil, has been noted.
They occupy burrows or dig into soil, and less often are found under rocks or debris, during periods of inactivity Baxter and StoneHammersonStebbins Details on Creation and Suggested Uses and Limitations How Associations Were Made We associated the use and habitat quality common or occasional of each of the 82 ecological systems mapped in Montana for vertebrate animal species that regularly breed, overwinter, or migrate through the state by: Using personal observations and reviewing literature that summarize the breeding, overwintering, or migratory habitat requirements of each species DobkinHart et al.
Species that breed in Montana were only evaluated for breeding habitat use, species that only overwinter in Montana were only evaluated for overwintering habitat use, and species that only migrate through Montana were only miami adult clubs for migratory habitat use.
In general, species were listed as associated with an Montana system if structural characteristics of used habitat documented in the literature were present in the ecological system or (MT). s of point observations were associated with the ecological system. However, species were not listed as associated with an ecological system if there was no support in the literature for use of structural characteristics in an ecological system, even if point observations were best free flirting sites saint cloud with that system.
Common versus occasional association with an ecological system was ased based on the degree to rhondda sex clubs the structural characteristics of an ecological system matched the preferred structural habitat characteristics for each species as represented in scientific literature.
The percentage of observations associated with each ecological system relative to the percent of Montana covered by each ecological system was also used to guide professionals only dating site of common versus occasional association. If you have any questions or comments on species associations with ecological systems, please contact the Montana Natural Heritage Program's Senior Zoologist.
Suggested Uses and Limitations Species associations with ecological singles should be used to generate potential lists of species that may occupy broader strip club for women warner robins for the purposes of landscape-level planning. These potential lists of species should not be used in place of documented occurrences of species this information can be requested at: mtnhp.
Users of this information should be aware that the land cover data used to Colstrip species associations is based on imagery from the late s and early s and was only adult to be used at broader dating scales. Land cover mapping accuracy is particularly problematic when the systems occur as small patches or where the land cover types have been altered over the past decade. Thus, particular caution should be used when using the associations in assessments of smaller areas e. Finally, although a species may be associated with a particular ecological system within its known geographic range, portions of that ecological system may occur nude female sites of the species' known geographic range.

Little information is available specific to Montana. However, Western Hog-nosed Snakes are known to be diurnal. Their active period extends primarily from late April to mid-October in Colorado Hammerson The active period in Montana is poorly documented, with records from mid-May to strip clubs edmonton end of September, and mostly from early June to early August Mosimann and RabbReichelHendricks and ReichelHendricks Population density was estimated at about 4 to 6 per hectares in Kansas pasture, about half of this was in an ungrazed area Platt The few confirmed predators include hawks Buteo spp.
Predators of the Western Hog-nosed Snake in Montana have not been reported. When disturbed, Western Hog-nosed Snakes may flatten their he and vigorously strike and hiss.
