Baby snow leopards – level 2

Baby snow leopards – level 2

28-06-2016 07:00

The zoo in Richmond, which is the capital of Virginia, USA, has two new animals: one-month-old snow leopard cubs.

The cubs do not yet have names, and they were born to a mother who was raised by humans. Her maternal instincts, however, are turned on, and she is taking great care of her babies.

All of them are in a private den – the public must wait a few months to see them.

Snow leopards are an endangered species.

Difficult words: cub (the young of an animal like the leopard), den (an animal’s hidden home), endangered species (a type of animal which may die out soon).

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