Baby pygmy hippo - level 2
Three weeks ago, a pygmy hippo was born in Bristol and it is doing very well. It does not have a name yet because people do not know if it is a boy or a girl. The staff of the zoo thinks that it is a boy.
The little hippo’s mother is very protective of the baby. She does not let anyone close. However, she does a great job as a mum.
There are only 3,000 to 4,000 pygmy hippos in the wild, so the new addition is great news.
Difficult words: staff (people who work somewhere), protective (she protects the baby very much), addition (a new thing, person, or animal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
