Baby warthogs – level 1
Chester Zoo is in England. It has three new animals: warthog babies. Their names are Hedwig, Nagini and Aragog. These are names from the “Harry Potter” books. There are two girls and a boy. They are just 20 centimetres tall.
These animals are called warthogs because they have warts. One pair of warts is on their faces. The second pair is near their tusks.
The warthog’s home is in Africa. Warthogs are in danger there. People catch them. There is also not enough water there.
Difficult words: warthog (an African wild pig), wart (an outgrowth on the skin), tusks (two long horns of some animals).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
