I've seen ticks on snakes before and we get a lot of ticks here on dog and ourselves - but this is crazy! Poor snake. I hope it survives.1 x Tanami Woma , 2 x spiny leaf insects, 1 x giant burrowing cockroach, 1 labradoodle, 4 hens, 1 rooster, 2 tonkinese cats and better not forget the 2 kids

I was thinking this was going to be another one of thoes threads where the aminal had a tick or two and the poster had taken it in for care and never let back to the wild becaues they thought it was to sick. But holy crap thats a lot of ticks, let your friend know she did a good job please.Youtube: SydneyReptiles

FMD!!! That is both horrific and disgusting!! I hate ticks. Interesting that they have all congregated at the head. What a blessing for that snake to have someone pick them all off.
It should survive without problems.The first thing you notice about a Lace Monitor is how reptilian they look. Immensely powerful, they possess all the skills of a crack SAS outfit - camouflage, strength, speed and rat cunning. -Steve Waters.
