This news is about butterfly pupae. There are 130 of them. They arrive at the San Diego Zoo. This zoo is in California.

People unpack the pupae. Workers of the zoo must be very careful. They hang the pupae. In time, butterflies will come out of the pupae.

These butterflies live in India and Southeast Asia. They have big wings. They fly like birds.

Difficult words: pupa (a young butterfly which is inside a special cover for protection), arrive (to come), wing (the part of the butterfly’s body which is used for flying).

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