Don:
Thanks for posting that photo. Very interesting looking snake. The info I've seen says that E. bella is a rodent eater. I didn't see any reference to longer front teeth. That adds to my feeling that the Oligodon label was an early mistake. Of course as I've said, without a DNA comparison it's difficult to be 100% sure of anything. My read is that it's a ratsnake. But please feel free to pass along info on Oligodon. They look interesting in their own rite.

Best regards
John
