What kind of snake is this?

Found in my backyard in Denver.

Closest pic comparison I've been able to find is a "Night Snake". I have a bigger pic if needed. He was found under some brush I was clearing out (leaves, mulch).

That, I believe, is a bush, not a snake.

Looks like a garter snake to me. Very Very Very popular here. I would catch 10+ of those a day when I was in elementary school.

I vote Night snake. Appears a little big for a garter snake. Either way, harmless.

Thanks guys, I was hoping it was pretty harmless. I think he was more scared of me & the rake than I was of him.

Night Snakes are not usually found in Denver, it's a garter snake.
