Shark and a seal - level 1

Shark and a seal - level 1

26-08-2015 15:00

Great white sharks can be 6 metres long. They can be 2 tonnes heavy. Many people see great white sharks in Massachusetts. Massachusetts is on the east coast of the USA.

One video is really cool. It shows a great white shark. The shark hunts a seal. The seal jumps out of the water. The shark jumps out, too. It tries to catch the seal.

The seal is lucky. The shark does not catch it.

Difficult words: coast (the part of the land near the sea), hunt (to try to catch, kill and eat), seal (an animal which feeds its babies with milk, rests on land and catches fish in the water).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
