Well, just a little update... Snake is doing well... Has been positively ID'd as a Flat Headed Snake, actually scarfed down 3 baby crickets and now I am waiting on a poop. (story of my life! LOL) His wounds have healed somewhat but two of the more severe spots still look bad. (no open wounds, just bumps sticking up) I thought he may have had a broken back, but it is more likely just serious muscle damage. He (or she), is still haulin butt around the cage and seems to be undanted with the injuries.. If I get a good poop out of him/her afterthe next couple feedings I will let it go somewhere in the yard. By the way, I am vey close to Tupelo Mississippi. Thanks to all for the help, I suppose that some of it may have even saved its life cause my first instinct was to put a dry hide and a wet one without even thinking about the fact that the wet hide would promote infection... who knows, maybe that would have killed it....
Anyhow, I will let y'all know when I let it go.... Thanks again!!!
:::That may well be a good guess, but without knowing where on the planet the snake was found, we really can only guess going on nothing but an incomplete description.
:I'm assuming he's in the good ol' USA because of his reference to the south.
:Anyways, the important thing is feeding it, and I think we can safely assume it is a colubrid, and a small one at that, so a diet of inverts seems reasonable.
