People help a flamingo - level 1
A flamingo lives at a zoo. This zoo is in Brazil. Something happens and the flamingo’s leg is broken. This is a problem. The leg can get infected. It must be cut off.
People cut off the leg, but they make the flamingo a new leg. It is 18 centimetres long. It is made from carbon fibre. Carbon fibre is a strong and light material.
The flamingo is learning to walk again. It is getting better and better. It can put the leg under its body. Flamingos do this normally.
Difficult words: flamingo (the pink bird in the picture), get infected (bad organisms can get into the leg and make the flamingo sick), normally (something normal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
