Two Pandas in Vienna – level 2

17-05-2018 15:00

Only once a year, the mating season for pandas happens. The females are only able to get pregnant for two or three days in a year, which makes getting pregnant difficult.

In a zoo in Vienna, Austria, two pandas mated a few times, which is a rare event in a zoo. The zoo filmed the act and released the video.

The length of a panda’s pregnancy is up to 163 days, so the zoo must wait to see if the mating was a success.

Difficult words: mate (make babies), pregnant (to start to have a baby inside), release (to let people see it).

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