Baby warthogs – level 2
The Chester zoo in England has three new animals – warthog triplets. People named them Hedwig, Nagini and Aragog, from the Harry Potter books. The two girls and a boy are just 20 centimetres tall.
These interesting animals are named warthogs because they all have one or two pairs of warts on their faces beneath their eyes and near their tusks.
Their home is in Africa where they are in danger because of hunting and very dry weather.
Difficult words: warthog (an African wild pig), wart (an outgrowth on the skin), tusks (two long horns of animals like the wild pig or the elephant).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
