Amur Tiger Cubs – level 3

12-12-2016 07:00

At the Milwaukee County Zoo, in Wisconsin, USA, the public saw the debut of three adorable Amur tiger cubs, as they are now three months old. Their names are Bernadette, Eloise, and Kashtan.

They are already showing sprightly personalities as they wrestled and tumbled with one another, and one even played with its “mini me” – a mini tiger toy.

Kashtan, the male cub, had an abscess on his leg. Zookeepers had to hand-raise him and are now keeping him in a separate area while continuing to feed him by hand. They are concerned that his mother might not accept him. On special occasions, they allow him to socialise with his sisters, much to the delight of the zoo visitors.

Difficult words: county (an area within a state), debut (show something for the first time), sprightly (energetic), tumble (fall over), abscess (a small hole in the skin that can become a serious problem).
