Thanks, I do not mean or want what I post to be the best. I can only hope that folks can gain some insight to hogs, just hogs.

I do love morphs, but all morphs are hogs first. Again, hopefully, we can see them as they are.

They combine behaviors of fast moving snakes, like coachwhips and cryptic snakes such as rattlesnakes.

My biggest surprise is how fast they are. They can flat cross a wide road and in minutes, including neonates. Or make quick dashes to burrows or bushes.

I don't understand how their defense works, or what its aimed for. Its starting to appear, its designed for badgers, Raccoons and skunks, as those are common predators in their area. Of course coyotes and fox are common too. It just seems they would be so easy to pick off. Cheers

They also like to sit and watch whats around them.
