Small tigers and dogs - level 2

Small tigers and dogs - level 2

14-02-2014 15:00

Three tiger cubs were rejected by their mother, so they are being raised by a step dog mum.

The two twin girls and their older brother are having a great time with their new step family. They play a lot with their step brothers and sisters. The cubs love playing a game of ball and getting their claws into somebody.

They are really cute and they have become stars at a safari park in China’s Zhejiang Province.

But it won’t be all fun and games forever. The cubs are expected to be reunited with their parents soon.

Difficult words: cub (baby), claw (animal’s big nail), claws into somebody (play rough), all fun and games (happiness), reunite (start to be together again).

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