Baby elephant in Dallas – level 2
This year, at least 17 elephants came to American zoos from Swaziland. Experts were afraid that the elephants would die there because of extreme drought.
One of the elephants was pregnant, and her baby was born at the Dallas Zoo on May 14th. The baby elephant measures 91 centimetres and weighs 79 kilograms. The zoo released a video of him in the pen.
The public is very excited to see the little elephant, but they must wait a few months. The baby elephant must spend some time with his mother first.
Difficult words: drought (when the weather is very dry), pen (an animal’s area in a zoo or farm).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
