Garden snakes are non-venomous and therefore will not bite and inject venom into their prey. Instead they will constrict their prey (usually small rodents) by wrapping their bodies around them and suffocating them. Garden snakes typically will not bite humans unless they are provoked handling them roughly or trying to eat them. If a garden snake does bite a human it will not be harmful since they lack the necessary fangs and venom.
