Liger Cub Born in Russia – level 3

06-02-2017 15:00

As there were no male tigers at a Russian zoo, zookeepers put Cesar the lion together with Princess the tiger. Later on, Tsar, the liger, was born.

The liger cub sounds and looks adorable now, but one day, his roar will be ferocious! He is one of 30 cubs in the world that was born to a tigress mother and fathered by a lion.

His big blue eyes are deceiving. Ligers grow far larger than their parents. The heaviest in the world is over 400 kilograms. Young Tsar will grow big and strong from milk from the zoo’s goat.

Difficult words: cesar (“king” in Greek), tsar (“king” in Russian), roar (when the tiger/lion makes a loud sound), ferocious (scary), deceive (trick).
