Many striped fuliginosis are mistakenly sold in the United States as Boaedon Lineatus. One common reason may be because they are being imported from benin and togo alongside black house snakes, and they currently share the same scientific name but dont look anything like each other. This may confuse importers who then go looking for a scientific name that they think fits better. So the striped fuliginosis gets labeled a lineatus by well meaning importers and then sold us such.
So how do you tell which your snake actually is? This video will show you how.
