Animals play the keyboard - level 2
Zookeepers at a zoo in the USA let some of the animals play. The otters play the keyboard, and an orangutan played the xylophone.
The music lesson was part of an animal enrichment programme. The programme wants to bring more fun into animals’ lives.
The zoo is home to around 2,000 animals of around 400 species, and it receives around two million visitors each year.
Difficult words: otter (mammal which swims in the water and eats fish), enrichment (act of making something better), species (animal kind).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
