Which subspecies is she?

Aye, with not having a snake for a little while I'm a lot happier she's had a feed.

I don't have a clue. I just bought her as a tri coloured hognose. I didn't even know there was subspecies.

A hog in milk's clothing. I wonder why they have the milk/coral colours & pattern, in a country that has no milk or coral snakes?

im pretty sure there's both occurring with tri hogs, certainly corals like pyrrhocryptus and altirostris and im sure some of the larger milks occur in the range, which for the genus is of considerable size.

So am I. And I love the fact she's a small snake. This is her in a 84lt RUB. She'll be fine in a 145lt RUB when she's full grown. Fine with room to have a good wander a round too.

If she like to explore her rub, you could add shelves, Storm is in a rub and uses his shelves a lot, put the water on a shelf too, no aspen in it anymore!
