Two bears meet - level 2

Two bears meet - level 2

A zoo in England welcomed a new bear. He arrived from Oklahoma in the USA.

It is rare that zoo animals move between Europe and the USA. The bear brings important new blood to Europe. The bear’s name is Bernardo, and he is very kind and calm. He was introduced to his new female friend. People hope that they will like each other and produce little bear cubs.

Difficult words: rare (special), new blood (more genetic diversity to make healthier bears), cub (baby bear).

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

Do you have bears in your country?
