Buzztail—The Story of a Rattlesnake

By Robert McClung

Something else moved in front of him. It was a big male rattler. Buzztail reared his head at this new threat, hissing loudly. The rival, almost as big as Buzztail, was a dull black color all over, with bands of an even deeper black showing faintly.

As the “biggest rattler on the mountainside,” Buzztail has seen it all. As you follow along with his adventures and challenges, you will learn about the life cycle of a rattlesnake. You will also meet many other animals and plants that share his ecosystem. This entertaining, yet informative, story will leave you with a deeper knowledge and appreciation of these scaly, slithering creatures.

This book is a suggested read-aloud for The Good and the Beautiful Reptiles, Amphibians, and Fish Science Unit Study.
