    It looks like a neat one. Is it outside of your house?

    From the size of it, it looks like some sort of python, which is not poisonous. However, that is pure speculation. Be careful until you know for sure.

    it looks to be an albino variant of a king snake or a common corn snake.

    Either makes a decent pet if handled and acclimated to human contact, but I would put up an ad or something to see if it is an escaped pet; Albinos in the wild at that size and age are rare.

    Cool snake, though.

    It's also known to be approached and taken inside homes by crazy Russians. :)
