Cheetah and a dog – level 2

30-06-2014 07:00

A mother cheetah rejected her baby at a zoo in California. Keepers had to hand-raised him.

They chose a dog to keep the little cheetah company. Both of them are only a few weeks old. People watch the friends when they play. Right now, they introduce them to each other.
The zoo then decided to let the public see their playdates. The two are really cute together. You can watch them every day from 12:15 to 1 o’clock at the San Diego Zoo.

Difficult words: keeper (somebody who looks after animals), keep company (to be with somebody), playdate (time when children play together).

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

What do you think will happen when the cheetah grows up?
