I have a pair of L. ahaetulla. If rear-fanged stands for enlarged rear teeth to you, then yes, they definately are. I've been bitten by accident on a couple of occasions and haven't even had so much as localized pain/swelling/redness. And that was a bite with the rear teeth that cut me pretty good. Though it was hard to tell if I was bleeding more or not because of the laceration from the teeth. Mine just plow through lizards, not even waiting to eat them head first, but instead bending them in half and swallowing that way, doesn't really give much time to see if they are being affected in any way. Just what I know, thanks for listening.
