There is a zoo in Chicago in the USA. The zoo has a new animal. It is a little male snow leopard.

The snow leopard is only two months old. People cannot see the snow leopard because he is still very small. People can see him in September.

The snow leopard is 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) heavy. He has no name. North America has only 140 snow leopards in the zoos. There are 3,500 to 7,000 snow leopards in the world.

Difficult words: zoo (place in the city with many animals), male (boy).

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