I will skip all the name calling and agenda stuff and go to the stressful part.(another joke)

Your absolutely correct, Hognose and their defense is based on stress. Anything that induces hissing, flattening of the head, or that cobra imitation, is STRESS. The reaction is the animals way of coping with the stress.

I think and only think, that Troy only considers it stress if it alters the physical condition immediately. Like hitting them in the head with a hammer. While that is stress, its a little insensitive. hmmmmmmmmm another joke

How many of you have noticed that when one bites your finger thinking its prey, will not eat right after letting go? With varanids, they often shake their heads and push out anything in their mouth as if we taste really nasty. Carry on fellas, no punching please.
