Notes

I found this snake while walking along a back road. It appeared to be a male, but I was not certain of that. It had some kind of reddish, granular material in between some of its scales. I couldn't tell if this was some kind of foreign material that had become embedded in its scales or if it was an infection. You can see the red material in between a few of its scales in the second picture.
