Koala stops the traffic – level 2

Koala stops the traffic – level 2

06-04-2016 15:00

A koala walked across a highway in Australia where it stopped busy traffic. A policeman guided the little animal to safety.

People looked on with amusement and filmed the animal. The police officer stayed close to the koala until it climbed up a tree.

Koalas look really sweet, but experts say that koalas should not be picked up because of their sharp claws.

Difficult words: guide (to help something go somewhere), amusement (fun), claw (an animal’s nail).

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