Shark and a seal - level 2

Shark and a seal - level 2

26-08-2015 15:00

Great white sharks grow up to 6 metres in length and weigh more than 2 tonnes. This summer, there were many sightings of them off the Massachusetts coast in the USA.

One video shows how a shark eyed its prey and jumped out of the water to catch a seal. It looked, however, that the seal was lucky and escaped.

Difficult words: sighting (an instance of seeing something special), eye (to watch), prey (an animal which is hunted and killed for food).

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