Koala on a Drilling Rig – level 2

26-10-2017 07:00

In Adelaide, Australia, a koala climbed up on top of a drilling rig at a construction site. As he took refuge from a busy nearby road, he appeared to like the new home. However, rescuers came, took a picture of him, and took him to the vet.

Difficult words: drilling rig (a machine for drilling – making a hole in the ground), construction site (a place where people are building something), take refuge (find a safe place).

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