Well an update: The D. dorsalis at the shop has started eating rodents! Whole mice with no scenting at all! I'm gonna snag him for sure. Thanks for the info, I'll do my best not to get a tag from him as I'm not wanting to experience the "worst scenario".
:: So far I've been working with him at the shop and I've gotten to get him to take blue anoles.

:That's encouraging.

:: I'm just wondering how closely related he is to either Drymobius or Leptophis, and if they have any sort of rear-fanged tendancies.

Yeah, I've got a pair of L. ahaetulla. I've had them a little over a year. My female was really thin when I got her, but she's eaten well since I've got her and has gotten her weight back. My male on the other hand, just started eating a little over a month ago, and now eats like a horse on anoles. I've even had some luck with getting them to take scented rat pups.

Well, I will definately staying here for my "odd-ball" questions, as this is the only place where I can get answers. You've been a lot of help and a good source of info for me. If you find anything else could you e-mail it to me?

The search for off-the-wall species continues...next step, Rufous beaked snake! I'll keep you updated. Thanks.
