Little snow leopard - level 2

Little snow leopard - level 2

06-09-2013 06:00

A zoo in Chicago has a new male baby snow leopard. He is two months old so he is still in a den which is closed to the zoo's visitors. People will be able to see him in September when he makes his first public debut. But for now, only TV cameras can capture him.

The little snow leopard weighs about ten pounds (4.5 kilograms) and he still has no name. There are 140 snow leopards in the zoos of North America and only around 3,500 to 7,000 snow leopards in the world.

Difficult words: male (boy), den (animal's home), debut (when something is shown).

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