Notes

The second snake pictured appeared to have Snake Fungal disease. The first one was in much better shape, but had a few ventral scales that looked suspect. I didn't touch the individual that was obviously infected. I hate to see this in the local snake population. I also saw what I believe was this disease on a local milk snake a few years back.
