I find that lizard scent is not as effective whereas if i use toad scent the success rate at producing a feeding response is about 98% effective. Most of the time when it gets to the point where i have determined that a snake will not eat an unscented and choose to try toad scent the reaction is almost immediate. Lizard scent just doesn't measure up to toad.I do believe it is a good idea for anyone who breeds hognosed snakes to at least have access to a toad. IMO
