Eight Cheetah Cubs – level 3
Bingwa, a cheetah in St. Louis Zoo, USA, is a mother of three males and five females, which is the first time that a cheetah has given birth to eight cubs at once at a zoo. The average litter size for a cheetah at a zoo is three to four cubs.
The zoo has not yet officially named the babies, and it said that the mother and her cubs are doing well but will remain in private for several months.
Difficult words: cub (a baby animal such as a big cat or a bear), average (typical), litter (a number of animals born to an animal at one time), remain in private (not be in public or around many people).
