Baby white tigers - level 2

Baby white tigers - level 2

06-05-2013 14:00

A zoo in Tokyo has a new attraction - four white tiger babies. They were born only a month and a half ago. They weigh just 5 kilograms and measure from 30 to 40 centimetres long.

There were queues of visitors who wanted to see the babies. A four-day weekend is coming in Japan and more people will probably come.

There are fewer than 200 white tigers in the wild so this zoo is very happy to have them and show them to people. Sometimes however, too many visitors can make these little tigers feel tired.

Interesting words: weigh (be heavy), measure (be long).

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