We Can't All Be Rattlesnakes

We Can't All Be Rattlesnakes by Patrick Jennings
When Crusher the snake is captured, her only thought is to escape but as time goes by and she befriends the other inmates of the "zoo," she realizes that freedom also means leaving companions behind.

Like a Dick King-Smith tale with a bit more bite-and a certain amount of biting-this animal-narrated episode casts a satiric light on human behavior but leaves room for compassion, too...Readers will enjoy her snake's-eye view of human foibles and cheer her on her way when a chance for release comes at last.
