New York Grand Champion Llama Wants To Be Next Cadbury “Bunny”
You think you've seen it all, and then you stumble upon a llama that wants to be a bunny. Sort of.
Each year, Cadbury hosts "Bunny Tryouts" around Easter time, and one lucky New York llama has made it into the final round of the competition after thousands upon thousands of other animals were in the running as well.
Meet Eclipse. She's a llama that lives in Gowanda, New York. She's actually a very talented, award winning llama, according to officials with the Great New York State Fair.
Last year, she was the Fair's Youth Performance Grand Champion and winner of the obstacle course event. But her eyes are on an even bigger prize,
According to her profile on the Cadbury website, Eclipse was born on her current owner's friends farm. Unfortunately, her mom passed away - so he took on the responsibility of bottle feeding her to keep her from going hungry. He soon after her birth decided to purchase Eclipse from the family friend. Since then, the pair have been inseparable.
She is already a grand champion, but this year, she's ready to do better.
By being in the finals for the "Bunny Tryouts," not only does Eclipse have the opportunity to be included in our classic Cadbury "Bunny" Easter commercial, but she also has the change to receive a cash prize of $5,000.
