Grey wolf in California – level 2

14-07-2014 15:00

This news is from a zoo in California. It is about a two-month-old grey wolf.

The little wolf is getting to know the world around him. He is in quarantine now. He needs to get ready for his job. He is going to be an animal ambassador. He is going to take part in demonstrations at the zoo. He is going to help visitors learn more about wolves.

Difficult words: quarantine (isolation to make sure he is healthy before he is with other animals), ambassador (animal which represents its kind), demonstration (show in which something is shown and talked about).

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

What do you feel when you see a wild animal in a zoo?
