Not a great picture, I know.

We were afraid it was a rattle snake, but not sure. We chased it into the neighbors yard.

The picture is very hard to see, but I think it is a Eastern Hognose. I can't see a distinct diamond pattern, which would be a venomous eastern diamondback rattlesnake.

Looks like the markings of a 'garter snake', harmless.

My husband is a country boy and he knows what a garter snake looks like. We aren't freaked out by snakes at all. We didn't get close enough to identify it,because we are new to the south and new to poisonous snakes, so kept our distance.

Anyway, it can live on next door. I have not been able to identify it from the poor picture of the markings.

The eye looks round to me which would suggest that it is a non poisonous snake.

I'll second that, and add, there doesn't look to be any pits near snout that are indicative of pit vipers. Still a little hard to tell for sure from the picture.

From what I can make out with the white dots and rings he looks like a young king snake.

Can you get a better picture? Tamp down the grass around him to show him up better.
