Giraffe has new friends - level 2

Giraffe has new friends - level 2

21-04-2014 15:00

A giraffe was born on January 8th at the San Diego Zoo in California. He is only three months old, and he had to spend more than a month in intensive care. He suffered from a bacterial infection.

His chances of recovery were slim, but he made it. He is now back on his feet, and he is already playing with his new friends.

The San Diego Safari Park is home to 13 Ugandan giraffes, which are an endangered subspecies.

Difficult words: slim (not good), subspecies (kind of animals that are part of a bigger group of animals), back on his feet (he feels good).

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