This news is about an animal. It is very rare. It lives in Afghanistan. It is a deer. It has two long teeth. Vampires have these same teeth.

The animals are in danger. There are not many of them. They may die out soon. This is because people catch and kill them. The natural home of this animal is also becoming smaller.

Difficult words: rare (special), deer (a big animal which eats grass and lives in the forest), may (can).
