Young polar bear in New York – level 1

08-03-2013 06:00

Buffalo Zoo in New York showed people a small polar bear. People could see it for the first time. The bear is only 3 months old. It is called Luna. Luna is a name for a short time only. Her name will change. People can send ideas for her new name to the zoo. The zoo will choose the best new name for Luna.

You cannot see Luna in the zoo now. The bear is still too small. They show a live video of the bear for three hours every day. Buffalo Zoo is the second zoo in North America where a polar bear was born in the last twelve months.

Interesting words: could (past tense of can), was born (came to life).

You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
