Snake Eats Tongs – level 1

06-06-2022 15:00

A man from Australia has a snake. He feeds it a rat. He holds the rat with tongs. The snake eats the tongs, too. This is dangerous for the snake. Doctors operate on it. They take out the tongs.

The snake’s name is Winston. He is getting better.

Difficult words: feed (to give food to an animal), rat (a small animal), tongs (a thing for taking small things like a piece of meat on the barbecue).

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