Baby Giraffe in Texas – level 3

20-06-2017 15:00

A zoo in Texas added another giraffe to its herd – a 1.8-metre-tall, 84-kilogram baby boy born on June 8th, who is still awaiting a name.

When he fully matures, people expect him to be 5.5 metres tall and weigh up to 1,360 kilograms. Along with the rest of the herd, he will join the African savannah exhibit which will open next year.

Difficult words: herd (a group of animals like giraffes or horses).
