If you can't find anything on your state's DNR page, or if your state has a fish and game commission besides the DNR, checked there
- then I'd go about checking with reptile specialist stores and herp societies/clubs in your state. These groups are both usually very helpful and friendly with providing information about state herp regulations.

If you are new to hognose snakes, I'd start with westerns. They acclimate to a diet of rodents a lot easier than their eastern (and southern) counterparts do. If you can't sell all your neonates, or keep some back for future breeding, it is much easier to feed a small colony of snakes rodents than it is anurans. I currently work with a breeding pair of Easterns and strive to get rid of neonates as fast as I can. Reason being, turning up 4-5 week old Southern Toads is a lot more work than buying frozen or live pinky mice.
