Cold Treats for Animals – level 2

18-07-2017 07:00

In Rome, the summer is hot. Zookeepers at a Rome zoo gave the animals ice-cold treats to help them cool down. One animal ate ice with fruit and a tiger ate a meat-flavoured ice lolly.

Zoo veterinarians said that the animals like the treats, which are nutritional as well. The vets sometimes add vitamins, minerals, or other medicines to the treats.

Difficult words: ice lolly (a hard ice cream), nutritional (good for the body), mineral (a natural ingredient in many foods that helps with health).

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