Rescue noodle - help!

Let’s start by saying I don’t know what I’m doing…Yesterday, I rescued a Morelia carpet python. A defensive one too. She came to me with mold in the tank, no water, and clearly needs to eat, I can see her spine.
I’ve been told I should clean the cage before feeding her but she’s so defensive of her cage she’s lunged at me just looking at her.

These snakes I’ve learned are NOT for beginners and I’d really appreciate any one with any help or advice on handling an aggressive noodle and rehabilitation. I’m pretty scared lol
