Deer with a vampire’s teeth – level 2

12-11-2014 07:00

For the first time in 60 years, people saw a rare animal in Afghanistan. The animal is known as the “Kashmir musk deer”, and it has fangs like a vampire.

The amazing animals are endangered because some people hunt them and their natural habitat is becoming smaller. One part of this animal is worth $45,000 a kilo – it is more expensive than gold.

Difficult words: fang (a large sharp tooth), endangered (animals which are endangered may die out soon), habitat (home).

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

Do you think it is a scary animal?
