Two pandas in Vienna – level 2
Only once a year, the mating season for pandas happens. The females are only able to get pregnant for two or three days in a year, which makes getting pregnant difficult.
In a zoo in Vienna, Austria, two pandas mated a few times, which is a rare event in a zoo. The zoo filmed the act and released the video.
The length of a panda’s pregnancy is up to 163 days, so the zoo must wait to see if the mating was a success.
Difficult words: mate (make babies), pregnant (to start to have a baby inside), release (to let people see it).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
