Tortoise takes a walk - level 2
In Japan, a woman bought her husband a giant African tortoise from a pet store. He built the tortoise an enclosure and fed it fruits and vegetables.
He also started to walk it through the city of Tokyo, much to people’s surprise, as the tortoise may be 70 kilograms heavy and is huge. The tortoise is now an Internet sensation.
The man said that the animal is becoming selfish because it wants to make new paths when they walk together, but the man was smiling when he said this.
Difficult words: enclosure (an open area with walls for an animal to live inside), huge (very big), sensation (something that is very popular).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Would you walk with a tortoise this big?
