Rhino is born in Denmark - level 1
Here is news from a zoo in Denmark. A mother rhino gives birth to a baby rhino there. This is a big event. The zoo films the moment. Everything goes well.
The baby rhino weighs 50 kilograms. He gets quickly on his feet. Moments later, he starts to walk. The baby rhino and his mother are healthy. However, they need to rest.
Rhinos are in danger. People kill them. People want their horns. Some people from Vietnam and China buy the horns. The horns are very expensive. One kilogram of a horn costs 65,000 dollars. That is more expensive than gold.
Difficult words: birth (to come into this world from a mother’s body), rest (to relax), horn (a hard bone that comes off an animal’s head).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
