Little Twin Elephants – level 1

03-07-2018 07:00

There is good news from a national park in Kenya. Two elephant twins live there. They are just two months old. This is a special thing. Elephants usually have one baby. The twins are with their mother and big sister. People look after them, too.

There are 58 elephant families at the park. There are1,600 elephants in total. There are only females in the families. Males leave their families when they are 10–15 years old.

Difficult words: twins (two animals born together), look after (make sure someone is OK), in total (altogether), female (a woman or a girl), male (a man or a boy).

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