People help a baby gorilla – level 2

05-04-2013 06:00

A baby gorilla is raised by humans at a zoo in the US because her mother left her after her birth in January. Ten humans will care for her until one of the zoo's female gorillas becomes her mother. It could take several months.

The human parents try to do what a gorilla mother would do with her baby. They are for example moving around dressed in a black furry vest. Zoo officials say the baby gorilla is doing well and growing quickly.

Interesting words: be raised (have parents who take care of you), humans (people), furry (hairy).
