You're completely missing what I'm saying.

I never said they were the same snake, they belong in the same general classification of snakes, drys have stronger jaws because they're a BIGGER SNAKE.

You just compared a rat snake and a racer, two snakes couldn't be more different. One is a sighthunter that kills by overpowering its prey and swallowing it alive (exactly the same as a dry), while the other is a constrictor. You figure out which.

I interact with them on a daily basis, I keep racers, cribos, and coachwhips.

Incidentally, mussuranas belong in the same general group as racers as well. They're just enormous, oversized racers, yes, with extremely strong jaws, but it's because they're a bigger, more thick bodied snake.

I have no idea where your kingsnake argument came from or what point you were trying to make with that.

I don't know how else to spell it out for you.
