Shake, Rattle, But Don't Run: A Rattlesnake Warning
By Erin Horner
  

1     The sound was hard to miss. It was a very loud buzz. Where was it coming from? Did someone have a rattle in his backpack? No, but someone had a rattle on his tail! There was a rattlesnake in the bushes!
 
2     Rattlesnakes are reptiles. They are long and narrow like many other snakes. But, they are different in one major way. Rattlesnakes are the only snakes with rattles on their tails. No other snake has this special tool. These rattles are made up of sections. Every year between one and three new sections grow onto the rattle.
