Poor guy, probably sneaked in while my hubby was pressure washing the patio...It was a baby, and we took him back outside the screen...

Never saw a garden snake look like that. Looks like a black snake that i just caught in my backyard about 3 hours ago.

We have one of those in our backyard. I think they eat the rodents and I hope they eat spiders.

I don't think they're called "black snakes".....I could be wrong but my hubby who was born and raised in FL said it was a garden snake....

It's a small black racer, which are good for gardens, therefore it is a garden snake. They are great to have in the yard, they eat all kinds of vermin. I have some that live in my yard but haven't seen the little guys in a few weeks.
