This news is from a zoo. The zoo is in Ohio, USA.

A polar bear is born at the zoo. She is a girl. She is 200 grams heavy. The mother stops caring for her. People must help the little bear. They feed her six times a day. They feed her a special polar bear formula. After two months, she is 3 kilograms heavy.

Difficult words: care for (to help), feed (to give food), formula (baby food which is not mother’s milk).

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

What type of formula do the people feed the polar bear?
