Little wombat is saved – level 2

Little wombat is saved – level 2

27-04-2016 15:00

A woman saw a dead wombat by the road in Tasmania. After walking up to the carcass, she noticed that the pouch was moving. There was a live baby wombat in the pouch!

The woman helped the baby from its mother’s body. It was cold, so she wrapped the little wombat in a towel.

Another woman now takes care of the baby. She keeps it in her bra to keep its body temperature up. Also, the place feels a lot like the pouch for the baby. It will stay there for three months.

Difficult words: wombat (an animal with a pouch that lives in Australia), carcass (an animal’s dead body), pouch (a pocket on animals like wombats, kangaroos and koalas for carrying babies).

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