76 degrees F.

About 20 minutes after sunset.

Found stretched out on road with partially regurgitated toad in mouth. Tried to gently slide it to the side of the road but it immediately went into full blown antics and finished regurgitating the toad. Also had a blood spot on top of neck. Possibly had been hit by a car?

This is how two friends and I came upon this snake. Up to this point, I had only seen one hognose in Ohio. On this day, we found two.
