Penguin Fathers Care for a Baby – level 2

24-12-2021 07:00

At Sydney Aquarium, there are two male penguins in a same-sex relationship, and people gave them a spare egg from a breeding couple.

The two fathers took turns to keep the egg warm. The baby penguin hatched and they now feed it and continue to keep it warm. When the chick grows adult feathers, they will teach it to swim.

Difficult words: spare (extra), breeding couple (a couple which can have babies – male and female), hatch (come out of the egg).

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