What kind of snake is this?

This thing was coiled up by my hose in the backyard. Scared me to death! What is it!

Specifically, they will eat rattlesnakes.

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

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

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