That's a pretty striking resemblance. I guess Mother Nature believes in re-using a good design. As an engineer I'm not above re-using a good design (hopefully with full credit given to the originator!). Thanks for posting that picture. It's nice when something allows me to appreciate the bigger picture when it comes to the ratsnake species I concentrate on. I've been concentrating for the last couple of years in husbandry issues for mandarin ratsnakes almost to the exclusion of enjoying the animals themselves.
Best regards
John

>>Probably some mimicry going on there, as I imagine schrencki and continental Gloydius sp. share a lot of common range. I'll have to dig into it a bit more when I get a chance.
