Notes

Two seen, one DOR (vouchered by Nathan) and one alive, sort of. This snake did not move much when approached, and when we tried to move it off the road with a stick, it moved, but very sluggishly and did not rattle despite physical contact. Closer examination of our photos shows it had some sort of growth/abcess on its jaw.
