We dedicate this paper to the memory of Hobart M. Smith, who died on 4 March 2013 at the age of 100. His pioneering observations on enlargement and sexual dimorphism of the adrenal glands of Heterodon served as the inspiration for our work. Dr. Smith's generous mentorship of one of the authors (A. H. S.) is gratefully acknowledged.
