Penguin is getting fat - level 1
This news is about a penguin. He is from New Zealand. People find him on a beach. He is hungry. He is in a bad condition.
People take him to a zoo. The penguin gets better.
Penguins must change their feathers. First, they let the old feathers go. Then, new feathers can grow. They are without feathers for 2-3 weeks.
This is a problem for penguins. They cannot fish without feathers. They must prepare for the moulting season. They must eat a lot of food before it.
The penguin in New Zealand is 3.3 kilograms heavy. Every day, he eats 1.2 kilograms of fish. He must be 5.5 kilograms heavy.
Difficult words: condition (a situation of the body), feathers (birds have may feathers; these are light things which grow from their skin), moulting season (the time when birds lose their feathers).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
