Amur Tiger Cubs – level 2

12-12-2016 07:00

In Wisconsin, USA, three Amur tiger cubs are three months old, and the public got to see them for the first time at a zoo. They are very young, but they already have sprightly personalities as they play together and with toys.

The male cub normally cannot be with his sisters as he had an abscess on his leg. Zookeepers hand-raised him and kept him in a separate area. They were worried that his mother might not accept him. They sometimes let him be with his sisters, which makes a zoo visitors very happy.

Difficult words: cub (a young tiger), sprightly (full of energy), abscess (a small hole).
