Extremely Large Bullock – level 3

25-01-2022 15:00

A massive steer towers among its regular counterparts, being almost 2 metres tall and weighing a whopping 1.4 tonnes.

Thanks to its size, the enormous animal named Knickers escaped the slaughterhouse because it is simply too big. It will live out its days in the paddocks of Lake Preston in Perth, Australia.

Difficult words: steer (a bullock – a castrated bull), counterpart (someone similar to you), whopping (very large), enormous (very large in size), paddock (a small field for animals).
