Baby tapir is born- level 1

14-08-2014 07:00

This news is from England. A tapir is pregnant. She is pregnant for 13 months. She gives birth to a baby.

Tapirs live in South America and Southeast Asia. They look like pigs, but they are related to horses.

The baby tapir is brown. However, some parts of his body are white. When he gets older, he will be only brown.

Difficult words: be pregnant (to have a baby inside the body), give birth (when the baby comes out of the mother), be related (to be in the same group of animals).

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