Michael, a college student, has been receiving many calls about the camel. His girlfriend posted the ad as a joke. He's already thinking of how to get back at her next year.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Rachel Kurzius of WAMU spotted a great deal on Craigslist - $2,500 for a camel. She texted the number because who wouldn't? But the guy who answered said he had no camel. Michael, a college student, had been receiving many calls, even heard from somebody who said they represented a zoo, and finally learned his girlfriend posted the ad as an April Fools' joke. He's already thinking of how to get back at her next year. It's MORNING EDITION.
