Strange old animal - level 2
An animal, which is distantly related to modern-day insects, died 580 million years ago. Experts discovered its fossils around 50 years ago.
After so many years, experts now know what the animal looked like. It was about 5 centimetres long and had a worm-like formation. It had seven pairs of legs and a throat full of teeth. The animal’s name is “Hallucigenia”.
The scientists are now working to create a study about the animal.
Difficult words: distantly related (a little similar to), fossil (an animal which is so old it turned into rock), study noun (a scientific paper).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
