Baby monkey in London - level 2

Baby monkey in London - level 2

08-08-2014 07:00

The London Zoo has welcomed its newest arrival. The baby was born only three weeks ago. We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl because the baby monkey is always on its mother.

The little thing currently measures only three inches (7.6 centimetres). It was born after a six-month gestation period. The mother and the baby are in the zoo’s ‘Meet the Monkeys’ exhibit. That means that you can actually walk among the monkeys – there are no barriers.

The monkeys live in large groups. The zoo has a group of 20. They all enjoy taking care of the baby.

Difficult words: arrival (coming of something new), gestation period (time when a mother has a baby inside her), exhibit (area where animals at a zoo live).

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