Injured Eastern Coachwhip

Took in this Eastern coachwhip (Masyicophis flagellum flagellum) that was stuck in somebody’s wooden fence. Snake has a bunch of cuts on it from trying to get free. Also had a bunch of fly eggs and ant bites. You can see some of the ant heads still stuck on the body from where they latched on. Cleaned it up, removed all the ants and eggs, it’s on antibiotics to prevent infection and the wounds are being treated. Expected to make a full recovery. Just will take some time.
