    Hognose playing dead documentary

    Hey guys,

    I am very excited to meet all of you and wanted to post an interesting video I just filmed. My name is Orry Martin and I am a Biology teacher who films Texas snakes documentaries for my students to help educate them on the beauty and diversity of reptiles. I recently filmed this one about the Eastern Hognose snake and wanted any constructive criticism to help make the films better. Thanks guys!!!

    That was great! I watched it twice, it was a lot of fun. I don't think it needs improvement at all. I'll be checking out your other videos.

    Re: Hognose playing dead documentary

    That was a very informative video. I have always wanted to see a hognose play dead. I heard that they do not do this very often in captivity. I give this video and A+.

    I had to watch the video twice...

    The first time I was just admiring the human.
    The second time I noticed the snake.





    Great video.

    Lucky kids to have a biology teacher like you! Most of the biology teachers I know do not do field herping/practical stuff much. They usually stick to the textbook. My biology teacher (I went to high school in the Philippines) took us out on a field trip to the beach on a coral reef island and we gathered specimens of stuff we found - both plants and animals, in the water or on land - and identified kingdom/phylum/class/order/family/genus/species, etc... that was one of my most memorable school days that until today (we celebrate our 25th high school reunion next month), I still remember sea urchins belong to the Echinodermata phylum.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Awesome video! It's so funny seeing them play dead like that...and the fact that you got him to do it so many times just made me laugh. Very informative and interesting I definitely give it an A+

    I think I'm going to move to Texas and study biology now!

    Wow, the feedback is looking pretty good so far. Thank you for checking it out ya'll. I have many more videos if you are interested in snakes found in Texas. Just click on my name to access my channel on Youtube. Thanks for the criticism. Are there any parts of the docs that ya'll were thinking "I wwould like to see more of that or less of this?" I appreciate ya'lls help
