Nerodia taxispilota, the Brown watersnake;
Volusia county, Florida (07 May 2020).

3/7 – While the right side of the head had more infectious splotches, so to speak, the left side was clearer with the exception of the eye — which had been rendered utterly useless. Despite its appearance, however, this was a robust, well-fed, and perhaps gravid watersnake.
