Snake in lettuce – level 2
A man from Australia bought lettuce in a local supermarket. The lettuce was in a plastic bag.
When the man came home, he saw that something was moving inside. First, he thought that it was a worm, but then, the animal´s tongue flicked out of its mouth.
The man got scared because it was clear that the animal was a snake. The man and his girlfriend saw that there was a hole in the bag and that the animal could escape. They quickly put the bag into another plastic bag.
Local authorities found out that the snake was venomous. It traveled in the bag 870 kilometers from a packing factory in another Australian city.
Difficult words: worm (an animal which has a long soft body and it moves underground), flick (to start moving quickly), venomous (an animal which can kill another animal when it bites).
