Baby Cuscus Bear – level 1

01-06-2018 15:00

This news is from a zoo in Poland. A baby cuscus bear is born there. This is a special thing. This is the first cuscus bear born in a zoo. Only four zoos in the world have cuscus bears.

These bears live in Indonesia. They eat leaves. They are marsupials like koalas and kangaroos.

This means that their babies are born very small. When they are born, they move to their mother’s pouch. They drink milk and are safe in the pouch.

Difficult words: to be born (come out of the mother’s body), marsupial (a special type of mammal animal that has babies that have to live on the mother’s body), pouch (a bag on the mother’s body).

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