Reactions to bites
Western Hognoses are considered harmless to humans. Although uncommon, it is possible to have a reaction to their bite. No deaths have ever occurred from a Western Hognose bite. Symptoms can include, itching, swelling, nausea, and irritation. Those with allergies or sensitivities may be at higher risk of having a reaction. The chance of having reaction increases if you allow the snake to continue biting. Do not try to “test” your sensitivity to a bite. Most bites are accidental and occur during feeding. Feeding tongs are advised. Please keep all this information in mind and practise safe, responsible, feeding and handling techniques.
For both the safety of the animal and a child, never leave any animal unattended with children.
