Rare Rhino Is Born – level 1

01-11-2017 15:00

This news is from a zoo in the Czech Republic. An eastern black rhino is born there. The rhino is healthy.

Eastern black rhinos are an endangered species. There are only hundreds of them in the wild. A new rhino is a very good thing.

The little rhino must stay with her mum for at least two years. Then, she can go to Africa.

Difficult words: endangered species (a type of animal which may die out soon), in the wild (free – not in a zoo).

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