Baby snow leopards – level 1

28-06-2016 07:00

Richmond is in Virginia, USA. It is the state’s capital.

The zoo in Richmond has two new animals. They are baby snow leopards. They are one month old. They do not have names. Their mother takes very good care of them.

People cannot see the snow leopards yet. They are in a private den with their mother. People must wait a few months.

Snow leopards are an endangered species.

Difficult words: take care of somebody (help somebody), den (an animal’s home), endangered species (a type of animal which may die out soon).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
