Sloth Comes to a Town – level 1

25-03-2021 15:00

This news is from Peru. A man owns a business. He comes to his business early in the morning. He finds a surprise. A sloth is in front of his business. This is very shocking. Local people take pictures of the sloth.

The man calls the city bosses for help. The help comes and people take the sloth back to the city’s natural park.

Sloths do not usually go near people. They usually stay in the forest. They also move very slowly. They can sleep 15 to 20 hours a day. They are an endangered type of animal.

Difficult words:  sloth  (an animal that moves very slowly and lives in trees), endangered (when somebody is in danger).

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

Have you ever seen a sloth?
