Baby Orangutan – level 2

08-10-2018 15:00

An adorable baby orangutan named Lily was born at a zoo in Kansas, USA. Lily’s mother Daisy is 33 years old, and Lily is her third and youngest baby.

Lily was born via C-section and both the mother and the daughter are OK. Lily is beginning to spend more time with her orangutan family and away from vets.

Difficult words: adorable (lovable, sweet, cute, beautiful), via (through), C-section (also a caesarean section – when doctors help the mother give birth by operating on her to the baby out), both (the two of them).

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