Big Crocodile – level 1

07-09-2020 07:00

Wildlife rangers look after national parks. These people protect animals in the parks. Last week, in Australia, they catch a big crocodile.

The crocodile gets too close to people. It is not safe for people. Wildlife rangers catch dangerous crocodiles there. They take them to crocodile farms.

This crocodile is 14 feet long. It weighs 770 pounds. It is a very big crocodile. This crocodile ends up at a crocodile farm. It is possible that farmers use this crocodile to breed baby crocodiles.

The crocodile is a saltwater crocodile. The saltwater crocodile is the biggest crocodile in the world. It can be 23 feet long. It can weigh 2,200 pounds. It usually lives in wetlands near coasts.

Difficult words: protect (to keep safe), breed (to keep and take care of animals to make young animals), wetland (a large area of land with a lot of water and mud).

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