Crotalus viridis swollen eye

Post by NACairns » August 10th, 2016, 7:59 pm

Came across this adult male C. viridis tailing a large female. It was a great looking snake and seemed to be in good health but I noticed this swollen tissue(?) around the eye. Any ideas what that may be?

Huh, it doesn't really seem that bad to me. My first thought is mosquito bite? I have no clue...
