Camels at Denver Zoo Celebrate First Birthday

Two bactrian camels named Hagrid and Sprout celebrated their first birthday at a zoo in Denver, Colorado, footage shared on April 28 shows.

Video filmed by Denver Zoo shows the camel pair enjoying their birthday treats in each other’s company.

“There’s no better way to celebrate these magical animals than with a special Sorting Hat ceremony,” the zoo wrote in a caption. “Based on their selection of food bowls in their Hogwarts-themed yard, Hagrid is now a Gryffindor, while Sprout was selected for Hufflepuff!”

“Hagrid, the male, is outgoing and playful while Sprout, the girl, is sweet and shy – but holds her ground when she needs to,” the zoo tweeted in August 2020. Credit: Denver Zoo via Storyful
