Gorilla lives in a house - level 1, A12

Gorillas live in nature or in the zoo, but they can also live in houses.

One gorilla lives in a house in France. She is 13 years old. Her name is Digit.

When Digit was born, her mother didn’t want to give her food. People, a husband and a wife, took little Digit home. She slept in their bed first 10 years, but now she has 130 kilos. She must sleep in her new bed now.

Digit likes to play with Lego. She likes to look at books too. Digit understands when her parents speak and her parents understand her too.

Her parents are 60 years old and they cannot live with Digit longer. They must teach her how to live with other gorillas. They believe that Digit will have her baby in the future too.
