Over the years Princess went 8-1 in selecting the Super Bowl victor, including her correct prognostication of last year's matchup. She also picked NFL playoff games.

Lacey Patch is looking for anybody who can provide photos of the Sunday services for Princess, a 27-year-old camel who called the Popcorn Park Zoo home for nearly the past decade.

Please email them to tom.davis@patch.com.

The memorial service will be held Sunday at Layton's Home for Funerals, 250 West Lacey Road, Forked River.

Layton's will be open at 10 a.m. and a service with tributes and a video presentation will begin at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the zoo is asking that donations be made to a special fund that was set up in memory of Princess.  Donations to the Princess Fund can be made to:

Popcorn Park
1 Humane Way
Forked River, NJ 08731
(Please write "Princess" on the envelope)

Princess,  who died Jan. 14, was known not only for her friendly demeanor at the park – as well as her love of graham crackers – but also for a stunningly accurate knack for picking football winners.

"The weeks leading up to the Super Bowl were always a very exciting time at Popcorn Park because of our beautiful camel, Princess," said John Bergmann, Popcorn Park Director, in an e-mail. "Arrangements have been made to memorialize and pay tribute to our beloved Princess, and there is no other day more fitting for this memorial to take place than on Super Bowl Sunday."

Over the years Princess went 8-1 in selecting the Super Bowl victor, including her correct prognostication of last year's matchup. She also picked NFL playoff games.
