Animals eat ice - level 3

Animals eat ice - level 3

As summer heat hits the country, animals in a South Korean zoo managed to stay cool with iced food and cold showers. With temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius this week at Seoul Grand Park Zoo, elephants tucked into huge ice blocks with various fruits and iced watermelons thrown into their pool.

After enjoying their iced lunch, elephants also cooled off with showers and dips in the pool to get relief from the summer heat.

Siberian tigers were even fed with iced beef liver.

Ring-tailed lemurs struggled to get into their frozen fruit, entertaining onlookers. And orangutans had fun with blocks of frozen fruit hanging off their play facilities.

Watching animals eating the ice fruit to cool down has become one of the zoo’s most popular attractions, as well as helping the residents fight off the constant heat.

Difficult words: tuck into (to eat food happily), huge (very big), dip (to go into water), struggle (to try hard).


Is it hot in your country, too?
