Dragons in New York - level 1
There is a zoo in New York. The zoo has some new animals. They are the Komodo dragons. These animals are lizards. They are from Indonesia.
A Komodo dragon eats other animals. Its prey can be big or small. The dragon bites its prey. Sometimes, the prey does not die quickly. The prey walks away, but the dragon waits. The prey dies in a few days. Why? The dragon’s saliva is toxic.
There are three dragons at the zoo. Two of them are boys and one is a girl. They are still small. They are only teenagers. They will be bigger.
Difficult words: lizard (animal which is like a snake with four legs), prey (animal which is eaten by a stronger animal), saliva (“water” in the mouth).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
