Cold Treats for Animals – level 3

18-07-2017 07:00

At a Rome zoo, zookeepers gave the animals ice-cold treats to help them cope with the summer heat. They gave some Brazilian coati ice with fruit and a white tiger a meat-flavoured ice lolly.

Zoo veterinarians said that the treats are fun for the animals and give them nutritional boosts through extra vitamins, minerals or medicine added to the treats.

Difficult words: cope (adjust to something), coati (an animal similar to the raccoon), nutritional boost (extra vitamins or minerals in your food).
