A duck has gone viral online for being unusually tall, and he’s been lovingly named “Long Boi” as a result.
Long Boi, who lives on the University of York campus in the UK, captured the hearts of thousands of people on the internet after a photo of him was posted on Twitter.
Though the tweet said that Long Boi is a mallard, his Instagram account (yes, he has one) says that he’s a mix between a mallard and an Indian runner duck, the latter of which is known for being, well, long. When he’s photographed with other ducks, his height is definitely more obvious.
If you love Long Boi, you’re not alone. He’s a regular celebrity both on the internet and on campus, and he’s even been given an honorary degree “to thank him for his services to the university.”
Long Boi was also ranked the “most popular waterfowl” by Bantshire University.
This is clearly one very well-loved duck! We hope Long Boi continues to bring joy to this campus and the world wide web for a very long time.
