Flat Snake

While beginning the 2 mile walk back from the beach back into Cowles Bog, I spotted this tiny Hognose snake. Looks to be a juvenile (judging by his small size). He was very docile, never even pretended to bite, and didn't try to get away.

Little, Flat Snake

I've never seen one so flat before. I know when Hognose snakes are threatened, their heads flatten almost like a cobra, but this snake was totally flat all the way to his tail.

Maybe my identification is wrong...any ideas?
