Amur Tiger Cubs – level 1

12-12-2016 07:00

In Wisconsin, USA, a zoo has three baby Amur tiger cubs. They turn three months old. The zoo lets people see them. They already have personalities. They also have a lot of energy as they play!

The male cub normally cannot be with his sisters. He has an abscess on his leg. The zookeepers take care of him. They keep him away from his mother. They worry that his mother will not want him. The zookeepers sometimes let the male cub be with his sisters. This makes a zoo visitors happy.

Difficult words: cub (a young tiger), personality (how someone behaves), abscess (a little hole).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
