Nice small animal – level 2

03-08-2023 15:00

A cute female hedgehog was filmed while she was cleaning herself. The footage was uploaded on the internet and it has become very popular.

The animal’s owner is happy that people like her hedgehog, but she is also worried. She is worried that people will soon want to have hedgehogs like hers as their pets. Hedgehogs are not like hamsters or guinea pigs.

Hedgehogs need more care and not everyone can give it to them.

Difficult words: female (connected with animals that produce eggs, not male), footage (film), pet (animal at home).

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

What kind of special care does a hedgehog need?
