This is an awesome pic... I was up in DE visiting my GF family with her, we were outside for a bonfire, well setting up for one and I came across a small hognose, or at least I thought it was one. I grabbed it and moved it far away from where we were building the fire pit, I am pretty sure thats the only time I have seen one in the wild since I have been up in this area...

I like these guys too, just don't like the dietary needs.

We have a local grocery store, Food City, that carries commercial frog legs. Most eastern hogs will take the frog legs, so I always have food. Even when the toads are hard to find. Of course, the legs do not give them all they need, so I use toads when I have them. I try to collect a good amount in the spring and then freeze them. This keeps them preserved for later use and also kills the parasites. My green male, that is a very LTC has survived well, and seems quite healthy on a long term diet of frozen toads and commercial frog legs.
