Little otter in Chicago - level 2
People found a sea otter pup in critical condition on a beach in California. Her mother was gone and she had to be fed as soon as possible.
Now the five-week-old orphaned otter is doing better. She is at an aquarium in Chicago. She weighs six pounds (2.7 kilograms) and is 22 inches long (56 centimetres). She drinks milk from a bottle and she is beginning to eat solid food.
Difficult words: pup (a young animal), orphaned (parentless), solid food (not liquid – like water).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
How would you name the otter? :-)
