Little polar bear in Ohio - level 2

Little polar bear in Ohio - level 2

11-01-2016 15:00

Two months ago, a polar bear was born at a zoo in Ohio. The staff had to take care of the cub after her mother stopped caring for her. The staff incubated her and kept her room nice and warm.

The cub weighed only 200 grams when she was born, but now she is 3 kilograms heavy. The cub eats special polar bear formula and staff feed her 6 times a day.

Difficult words: staff (the people who work somewhere together), cub (a young polar bear), incubate (to keep a baby safe and warm in a special box), formula (a baby’s liquid food which is not the mother’s milk).

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

Why do sometimes animals stop caring for their babies?
