Fugu fish in Crimea - level 1

Here is some news from Crimea. It is about the fugu fish. This fish does not normally live in Crimea. Experts want to know why it is there.

The fish is very special. It gets big when it is in danger. It looks like a balloon. Its organs are poisonous. If you eat a little, you die.

People from Crimea don’t like the fish. They say that it is a danger to other animals.

Difficult words: organ (important part of the body that helps the body stay alive), poisonous (something that can kill you because it will make your organs stop working), danger (when something is not safe).

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