Nerodia taxispilota, 07 May 2020

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

5/7 – Like the earlier infected Brown watersnake I’d seen at this location prior, there were no significant signs of infection mid-body. This one, however, was incredibly robust and thick. I suspect this was likely a gravid female.
