Baby Orangutan – level 1

08-10-2018 15:00

A baby orangutan is born in a zoo in Kansas, USA. Her name is Lily. She is very cute. She is born from a C-section. Her mother is 33 years old. Her name is Daisy. Lily is Daisy’s third and youngest baby.

Both the mother and the daughter are fine.

Difficult words: cute (sweet and beautiful – like a baby), C-section (also a caesarean section – when doctors cut the baby out of the mother’s belly to help the mother give birth), both (the two of them).

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