Beautiful baby giraffe - level 2

Beautiful baby giraffe - level 2

The Los Angeles Zoo has a new animal. A baby giraffe was born there just two weeks ago. She was shown to the public for the very first time on Friday.

The six-foot-tall Masai giraffe is called Sofie. Masai giraffes live in East Africa. They are in danger because they are killed by people for their meat there. The numbers of the giraffes are going down.

You can see Sofie and her mum daily during zoo hours.

Interesting words: public (normal people, not the leaders), called (named).

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