Baby Albino Kangaroo - level 2
Last year, a baby kangaroo was born at a zoo in Russia. It hid in its mother’s pouch for a long time. Now, it came out for the first time.
The young kangaroo is a boy. What’s more, he is an albino kangaroo which means that he has white fur and red eyes. Only one kangaroo in a thousand is an albino.
The baby kangaroo is lucky to be in a zoo – albino kangaroos attract more predators in the wild. They are also more susceptible to skin cancer, sunburn, and sight and hearing difficulties.
Difficult words: pouch (a bag for a baby on its mother), fur (hair), susceptible (likely to suffer from an illness).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
