Snake needs help
This news is about a snake. She lives in a zoo in Brazil. She is sick. She loses weight. Vets see this. They do some tests.
The tests tell them what’s wrong. The snake has an egg in it. She cannot let the egg out. The egg makes her sick. It must be taken out. Vets operate on the snake. They take out the egg.
This type of snake is a python. Pythons do not make venom. However, they have big, strong bodies. This snake is 5 metres long.
Difficult words: weight (how heavy something is), vet (an animal doctor), venom (poison; something like water which can kill you).
