Do not make a wet hide box...the humidity from it could hurt more than it might help. Just leave a substrate of papertowels with a few hides and a SMALL waterbowl. Make sure temps are kept up. I would keep it...make sure it is ok. If it was natually injured, then I would probably leave it. But since it is a human's fault, I feel it is better to try and save it. Personally I would get it to a vet ASAP. My friend found a coral snake that acted a little sluggish but had no outward injuries. It had been hit by a car and died the next day(so not all wounds are as superficial as they seem). For the wounds, I use neosporin or a topical antibiotic creme for wounds to make sure they do not get infected. Again, I would get it to the vet if that is an option just to make sure there are not internal injuries that could possibly kill it if not rectified in some way. Andy
