Shark and a Seal – level 2

25-08-2022 15:00

Great white sharks grow up to 6 metres in length and weigh more than 2 tonnes. This summer, there were many sightings of them off the Massachusetts coast in the USA.

One video shows how a shark eyed its prey and jumped out of the water to catch a seal. It looked, however, that the seal was lucky and escaped.

Difficult words: sighting (an instance of seeing something special), eye (to watch), prey (an animal which is hunted and killed for food).

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