Small baboon at the Bronx Zoo - level 1
A monkey is born. It is a boy. He is 460 grams heavy. When he gets older, he will be 30 kilograms heavy.
He is a gelada baboon. This type of monkey is special. This type of monkey eats grass. Gelada baboons are also called bleeding-heart baboons. Why? They have some red skin on their chests.
The baby baboon lives at the Bronx Zoo. This zoo is in New York, USA.
Difficult words: bleed (when the red “water” gets out of your body), heart (a very important organ in the middle of your chest), chest (the front part of your body between your neck and your belly).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
