Family Lives With Lions – level 1

11-04-2022 15:00

This news is from Gaza. There is a zoo. This zoo does not have enough money. It must sell two lion cubs. A man buys them. He brings them home. The cubs become pets.

In the beginning, the cubs need their mother. They must be breastfed. The mother of the cubs lives in the zoo. The man takes them to the zoo every night. Later, the animals grow bigger. They start to eat meat. They don’t need their mother anymore.

People like the little lions. Children play with them. However, the cubs will get big. They will be dangerous.

Difficult words: cub (a young animal), breastfeed (when a mother gives her baby milk), will (this means “in the future”).

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