Cottonmouth with injuries or possibly fungal disease

We found this large cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus) during the fall bioblitz at Split Oak. It was a nice surprise as I never had seen one there prior to that. Upon closer inspection it seems like the poor snake either had a fungal infection or some gnarly old battle wounds.
