Young Whale Helps Its Mum – level 3
A humpback whale with her calf was filmed east of Brisbane where the mother was stranded in shallow waters. The calf appeared to nudge its mother to help dislodge her to safety.
Fortunately, the whale became free after 40 minutes and could be seen swimming off with her calf.
Difficult words: calf (the baby of an animal such as a whale), stranded (unable to leave), nudge (push, bump against), dislodge (move).
