World’s Smallest Donkey – level 2

22-12-2017 07:00

The smallest donkey in the world is only 40 centimetres tall, but he cannot earn the world title until he is one year old. Then people will measure him again. The current world record holder is a donkey who is 40 centimetres taller and is 10 years old.

The smallest donkey is eight months old, likes carrots, and lives with his owner in England. She says that he is a great pet and small enough to be inside her house.

Difficult words: measure (see how tall or big something is).

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