Baby walrus - level 2

11-07-2014 15:00

A baby walrus was born at a zoo in Hamburg, Germany. Birth of walruses are rare, and the zoo cannot be happier. The baby is already a local star.

For the Hamburg zoo, it is the first birth of a walrus calf ever. The pup and its mum need to be safe, so they are still in a quiet part of the zoo. The baby has no name yet. Visitors will choose it through a competition.

Difficult words: calf (young animal), pup (young animal), quiet (not loud), competition (situation when you try to be better than other people).

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