Rare frogs in England – level 1

19-01-2015 15:00

This news is from a zoo in England. Rare frogs have babies there. People call these frogs cinnamon frogs. They come from Southeast Asia. They live in tropical forests there.

The frogs need special conditions. People must create these conditions. For example, the frogs need little ponds in trees.

People build a new exhibit at the zoo. It costs 30 million pounds. The frogs will go there soon.

Difficult words: rare (special), pond (a small area of water), exhibit (a very big building for animals).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you sometimes visit a zoo?
