Spilotes? Cribo? Need Education...

The post below by gila has a link to a real yellow spilotes. When you go to the site (which I have seen before) it calls it a common name of "Cribo" or "Chicken Eater" and then give the scientific name "Spilotes Pullites". The spelling may be wrong there. Anyway, I have been trying to learn as much as I can on the Dry family and learn their scientific names and all but I thought that the spilotes was actually a different snake. One of the common names is a "Tiger Rat" correct? Some questions I have are: Are spilotes in the same family as the Dry's? Where did the common name "Cribo" come from? Are Cribos the same as Spilotes?

This is a real simple one for most of you but I am no biologist, herpotoligist, vet, or anything like that. This is just a hobby for me. I think snakes are so cool. Now that I own an Eastern Indigo I know that the Dry family is the coolest there is, so I'd like to learn as much as I can. Thanks in advance.

Greg
