Good Morning: Here’s An Adorable Baby Camel Named After Queen Elizabeth [VIDEO]
9:38 am, June 26th | by Amy Tennery
Well, here’s something super random to start off your Tuesday morning: A baby camel named after Queen Elizabeth II.
Born at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, the calf (yes, a baby camel is called a “calf,” apparently) is acclimating well, after what zoo keepers describe as a “trouble-free birth.”
Why a camel? That much is unclear. But given the timing of the young dromedary’s birth (i.e., right around the Diamond Jubilee), it’s rather fitting. I supposed Queen Elizabeth can count herself lucky that there were no births in the reptile house during her celebration.
So far, she’s responding simply to “Elizabeth” and has not yet asked for anyone to call her “Her Royal Highness.” Oh, but you better believe that’s going to start soon. You know how camels are.
