People find a body of an animal. They find it in Siberia. It is 10,000 years old. It is the body of a woolly rhino. People name it Sasha.

The body is in good condition. It has wool, a face, one eye, an ear and teeth. Scientists want to study the body. They want to get its DNA.

The body was in permafrost. Permafrost is a type of ground. This type of ground is always frozen. This was why the body was still fresh.

Difficult words: woolly (when something has wool; sheep have wool, for example), DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid that carries genetic information), frozen (very cold; when the temperature is below 0°C).

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