Doctors help a gorilla - level 1

Doctors help a gorilla - level 1

24-03-2014 15:00

A baby gorilla is born. She is born in California. She is very beautiful. However, her start to life is not easy. There are some problems during the delivery.

She also has a problem with her lung. The zoo asks doctors for help. These doctors help human babies, but they can help a baby gorilla, too! Working with gorilla babies and working with human babies is very similar.

The baby is getting better. The mother is fine, too. Soon, the baby gorilla will be with her family.  

Difficult words: be born (get out of the mother’s body), delivery (the moment when the baby is born), lung (organ for getting air inside the body).

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

How often do you visit a zoo?
