Panda is born - level 2

Panda is born - level 2

19-07-2013 14:00

A nine-year-old panda from the Taiwan Taipei Zoo gave birth to her baby. She didn't need any help during this special moment. She simply knew what to do thanks to her instincts.

Everything went smoothly, which was quite a relief, because the panda had problems with getting pregnant. The keepers said that this was the seventh attempt to make her pregnant. The only job now is to find a nice name that would fit this baby.

The number of pandas is decreasing and there are only three hundred panda couples that can have babies. Every new panda is a reason to celebrate.

Interesting words: smoothly (without problems), relief (feeling when something that could go wrong is OK), decrease (become fewer).

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