People help a flamingo - level 2
A flamingo at a Brazilian zoo broke its leg. Unfortunately, the bottom portion of the leg had to be amputated to stop it from getting infected.
The bird was given a lightweight 18 centimetre prosthetic leg. It was made of carbon fibre, which is a strong and light material, with silicon ends.
The flamingo still limps a little, but it is becoming more comfortable with its new body part. It can already put the leg under its body, which is a thing that flamingos often do.
Difficult words: amputate (to cut off a body part), prosthetic (not of the body; made by people), limp (to walk badly).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
