Twin Pandas and Snow – level 2

19-01-2018 07:00

At a zoo in Vienna, one-year-old panda twins are experiencing snow for the first time, and they are in love with it. They climb things, run around and play.

Pandas like the winter because they are from the mountains and the forests of China. They have thick fur which keeps them warm. They even have fur on the bottom of their feet, so walking on snow and ice is not a problem.

Summer, on the other hand, is a time when pandas can get quite lazy. They look for shade and relax.

Difficult words: experience (come into contact), climb (get on top of something), fur (thick hair on an animal).

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