This was in my back yard...does anybody know what kind of snake it is?
This thing was coiled up by my hose in the backyard. Scared me to death! What is it!

And they just cruise around Roseburg? Are they poisonous?

No, king snakes are not poisonous. They help control rodents and eat other snakes too.

We found two in our yard also... I am not sure what is bringing them out.

Yes, it is a King Snake and very desirable to have around.

Specifically, they will eat rattlesnakes.
