Baby Gorilla – level 1
This news is about a gorilla. It is born at a zoo. The zoo is in California. The gorilla is born overnight. Keepers see it for the first time in the morning. What a nice surprise!
However, it is not easy to see the baby. It is very small. It is on the mother’s chest. Gorilla babies are only between 1.6 to 2 kilograms heavy.
The mother is called Cocoa. The dad is called Winston. The baby is their second child. The zoo has eight gorillas. There are not many gorillas in the world. They are endangered.
Difficult words: keepers (a person who gives food and helps the animals), surprise (something nice which you do not expect to happen), chest (the front of the body), endangered (something that may no longer live on this world).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
