Hello all. On Sunday I was in my garden with a spade and injured a rough earth snake. Now I'm trying to take care of her, but I'm sure I could use some pointers. I've been cleaning her wounds (one about a third of the way from her head, one near her tail), first with hydrogen peroxide, then diluted povidone iodine. I bandaged her twice, the first time with triple antibiotic cream, the second time with manuka honey. Both times have been a challenge--the bandages move. And since the second time, a small piece of medical tape got stuck to her skin. She eats earthworms, from my research. She's eaten one in the three days I've had her. She's started to shed. 24 (maybe 36?) hours ago, there was a little ring around her nose. It's only come off a tiny bit--still near her face. This evening I put her in a warm bath (distilled water). Then I put her inside a warm damp towel. Still no progress on shedding. And the tape is still stuck to her. I know that she can heal. I'm hoping for any advice about bandages (can I not bandage her? just clean the wounds twice a day?) And shedding. From what I've read, once they start to shed, it should happen quickly. Also any ideas about this goshforsaken medical tape being stuck near her tail. I know she is a wild animal. She's beautiful, but I want her to recover so she can go back to burrowing in the dirt.
