A zoo in Los Angeles has a new giraffe. She was born two weeks ago. Her name is Sofie and she is six feet tall. People saw her on Friday for the first time.

She is a Masai kind of giraffe. These giraffes live in East Africa. Giraffes in Africa are in danger. Bad people kill them. The numbers of the giraffes are going down.

You can see Sofie and her mum every day at the zoo.

Interesting words: kind (type), in danger (in a bad situation when you can be killed).

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