【图片英语】              圣诞老人的雪帮手,英国纯白驯鹿惹人爱

 

                                      【图片英语】英国纯白驯鹿惹人爱 - 佳中 - 嘉华相恋

  

       Peering out from between the evergreens, Snowy the baby reindeer has been putting a garden centre

and its customers in the mood for a real white Christmas.

      The all-white - and extremely rare - reindeer has been enchanting children with her snow-coloured fur at

the Victoria Farm Garden Centre in Whitby, North Yorkshire, lending a mythical feel to the festive season.

      The six-month-old baby was born in May and, due to a freak genetic mutation, is completely white.

However she is not thought to be an albino due to the absence of red eyes.

      One of the garden centre's owners said he couldn't believe it when they discovered her in the fields of

their farm, which has been breeding reindeer for years. We have bred reindeer for years, but have never

known anything like this to have happened before. The chances of a snow white reindeer being born is

roughly one in 10,000.”

     Mark Noble, 44, added: “Our visitors absolutely love her. She is the cutest little thing and she has made

us all very happy. Children could be heard shrieking in delight as they caught their first glimpse of the

reindeer today, but - due to the naturally shy nature of the animals - they were unable to stroke Snowy.

    While Snowy's name might be apt, it is only a temporary moniker and the public has the opportunity to

choose a new one.

 

译文

       从常青树之间向外凝视,雪白的驯鹿宝宝已经将花园中心和游客们带入了浓浓的白色圣诞节气氛中。

       极为罕见的白色驯鹿出现在约克郡的维多利亚农场花园中心,它纯白的皮毛吸引了许多好奇的孩子,给圣诞

佳节带来了童话般氛围。

       6个月大的驯鹿宝宝降生于5月份,由于奇异的基因变异,全身雪白。不过,它还算不上是纯白化体,因为它

的眼睛还是红的。

       花园中心的一位老板说,“在园场发现它的时候,他简直不敢相信。我们已经培育驯鹿多年,但从来听说过

有这样的事发生。生下白鹿的机率大概只有万分之一。”

       这位44岁的马克·诺伯补充说,“我们的游客都它对爱极了, 这个最可爱的小东西让我们都很高兴。孩子们

今天第一次见到它都高兴得地尖叫。但是由于动物害羞的本性,还不能让孩子们去抚摸“雪白”。

      “雪白”这个的名字可能很贴切,但它只是一个暂时的叫法,公众还有机会给他选择一个新名字。
