Idle curiosity, why would an african viperid be "commonly" mistaken for a hognose. That implies that many people are living with the impression that, a) their ranges overlap (across and ocean), b) their endemic to both africa and canada or c) they've been introduced. Are people seeing these snakes in close proximity or are they implying that hognose indulge in some sort of puff adder mimicry. Where are lay people getting into situations where they have occasion to mistake puffs for hoggies.
