Baby Lynxes in Vienna – level 2

12-06-2018 07:00

Two little lynx babies were born at Vienna zoo, and their lynx family is part of a program to reintroduce the lynx into the wild in Europe.

Their mother gave birth to them in secret in a hollow tree stump, just as lynx do in the wild. She then kept them hidden for the first two weeks of their life. The little cats are blind during this time.

Most recently, people saw the cats for the first time.

Difficult words: lynx (a medium-sized wild cat with a short tail), reintroduce (bring back to live where something was in the past), hollow (with space inside), tree stump (the bottom part of a tree).

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