Thank you for your prompt responses,

1.The hatchling definitely is somewhat high strung, as I've read they often are when young. It's reassuring news that its typical behaviour is translating to his food-shyness, rather than some other factor. I've patience and I will definitely wait for him to come around to be a 'rodent-vacuum'. Looking forward to it.

2. I've had a look over and I can see that it's somewhat of a controversial topic. From visual memory, my hatchling's case is not that severe, but I guess the mere presence of the said split scale is an indicator nevertheless. I did purchase the animal from unrelated parents. I get home late tonight, but when I do - I will take a picture of it.

Finally, I was wondering if there were any good books on Drymarchon that you could recommend to me. I've done a brief literature scan, I have read what I could here and there but something to add to my 'herpetological library' would be great.
