Hey, it kinda sucks when nobody responds So I'll give it a shot.First-the way scientist identify species or new species is by counting scales.This is not easy work.Also I dont know if you have the snakes in question [in-hand]or are just wondering.If you own the snakes,you can use a shed skin and some sort of magnification-or a digital photo you can zoom in on,point being these things hold still.If your just wondering or have one or the other of these snakes start looking them up on the web.The scales to count or pay attention to are on the head especally between the nose and eye,the upper lip,around the eye and top of head probably in that order.The easy way would be to post a head-shot picture...well If someone responded. jenni/
