I really like this book because it has a lot of details and facts about snakes. It talks about what you should do if a snake bites you. I think that Buzztail is a really good book if you like snakes and want to learn more about them.


My son loved it!

I was completely shocked when my son closed this book at the end and proclaimed, “I love snakes!” 🤣 He enjoyed learning about the life of a rattlesnake. He loved the many challenges the rattlesnake faced that he had to fight through. Some of the challenges felt suspenseful and made him want to keep reading!
We are very excited to complete the reptile unit study now that he has read this!

Level 4

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.
