Baby seal is lost - level 2

Baby seal is lost - level 2

22-04-2014 15:00

Here is some news from Sweden. A baby seal lost its way and ended up in a town’s harbour. People who found it wailing around the quayside filmed it. It went back out to sea after some time.

Seal mothers leave their baby seals when they are just two to three weeks old. They are left on ice. They must live off their fat and produce the right fur. When they have the right fur, they can hunt. They are programmed to do this, so they do not miss their mothers.

Difficult words: wail (to make a long high sound because you’re sad), quayside (area where boats can stop), fur (short fine hair of an animal), programmed (the animals have instincts how to survive).

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

How often do you meet sea animals?
