Baby monkey in London - level 1

Baby monkey in London - level 1

08-08-2014 07:00

This news is from the London Zoo. A monkey at the zoo is pregnant. After six months, her baby is born.

The baby is three weeks old now. It measures three inches (7.6 centimetres). It is always on its mother. Zookeepers cannot look at it closely. We don’t know yet if it’s a boy or a girl.

The monkeys have a special exhibit at the zoo. You can walk among the monkeys. There is nothing between you and the monkeys. They live in big groups. The zoo has a group of 20 monkeys. All of them help the baby.

Difficult words: be pregnant (have a baby inside the body), zookeeper (person at a zoo who helps the animals), exhibit (area at a zoo with animals).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
