Are living snakes diphyletic?

Just wondering...

Seems like the tiny burrowers (blind snakes) are more like amphisbaenians and 
the larger non-burrowers are more like varanids. 
I know about the rings, and the scales and the DNA. I'd like to know about the 
osteo-differences and key taxa I should be looking at.

The morphological variation in the burrowers is pretty incredible...
