Eight Cheetah Cubs – level 2

12-01-18 15:00

A cheetah at St. Louis Zoo, USA, gave birth to three males and five females. This is the first time that a cheetah has given birth to eight cubs at a zoo. The average litter size for a cheetah in a zoo is three to four cubs.

The zoo has not yet named the babies and said that the mother and her cubs are doing well, but they will remain in private for a few months.

Difficult words: cub (a baby animal like a big cat or a bear), average (normal), litter (a number of animals born to an animal at one time), remain in private (not be in public).

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