From the Maryland DNR: Please allow us to introduce one of the more interesting species found in Maryland. The Eastern Hog-nosed snake is non-venomous, but has a couple of tricks, one of which may make you think twice if you encounter it. If threatened, it will initially hiss and spread its neck like a cobra’s hood. If that doesn’t work then it’ll go in the other direction and roll over and play dead (even letting its tongue hang out).
