Snake eats tongs - level 1
A man from Australia has a snake. He feeds it a rat. He holds the rat with tongs. The snake eats the tongs, too.
This is dangerous for the snake. Doctors operate on it. They take out the tongs.
The snake’s name is Winston. He is getting better.
Difficult words: feed (to give food to an animal), rat (a small animal), tongs (a thing for taking small things like a piece of meat on the barbecue).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
