I live in the Fort Worth area and found the EXACT same snake in my
garden today.... But I can't figure out what its exact name is! I picked
it up with my hands and it just kinda slithered around my arm. Even
though I know alot about different kinds of snakes, I have not been able
to figure this one out. I can assure you though that this is a
non-venomous snake. It's definitely a colubrid (2/3 of the snakes in the
world are... most of which are non-venomous). These types appear to be
harmless and probably feed on bugs and maybe small lizards in your
The only venomous snakes found in Texas are rattlesnakes, coral snakes,
cottonmouths, and copperheads. Since this little grey guy is clearly
none of these, I would say your good to go!
