Panda Is Born in France – level 2

08-09-2017 15:00

A rare baby panda was born in a French zoo. The zoo released video of it. You can see how the panda changes every day.

When it was born, it weighed only 142 grams and it did not have fur. Five days later, you could see some white hair on its pink little body. At 12 days old, black panda spots were beginning to show.

The little panda does not have a name yet. His mother was pregnant with a twin, but it was too small to survive.

Pandas are a vulnerable species. Only 1,800 live in the wild and 400 live in zoos.

Difficult words: release (let people see), fur (an animal’s hair), vulnerable species (a kind of animal which may die out soon).

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