Baby Otter Is Saved – level 1

10-05-2017 07:00

A baby otter is in a canal in Arizona. It is not well. It is hungry, dehydrated, and full of fleas. Luckily, people see it.

They take it to a centre which helps animals. There they give it milk and fish. It gets better quickly. The otter starts a new life in a wildlife park.

Difficult words: canal (a river made by people), dehydrated (without enough water in the body), flea (a small animal which lives in hair and sucks blood), wildlife park (a nice and safe place for animals).

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