Liger Cub Born in Russia – level 1

06-02-2017 15:00

A female tiger is at a Russian zoo. There are no male tigers. Zookeepers put her with a male lion. She has a baby. The baby is called a liger. He is one of 30 liger cubs in the world.

The cub has big blue eyes. He looks adorable. One day, however, he will be very big. Ligers grow bigger than their parents. The biggest liger is over 400 kilograms.

The cub drinks milk from the zoo’s goat.

Difficult words: cub (a baby animal such as a bear or a big cat), liger (a cub that has a tiger mother and a lion father), adorable (very cute, beautiful, sweet).

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