In this spotting the snakes eyes appear whitish in color. Snakes do not have eyelids; instead they have specially adapted scales over their eyes called eye caps (also known as spectacles). These are normally shed along with the skin during each shed cycle, but sometimes they do not shed properly -- a condition called retained eye caps.
