Juno was adopted by the army shortly after she was born back in 2015, and was reportedly named after the Canadian landings on Juno Beach in World War II.

“Juno has reached a new milestone and was promoted by the Canadian Army from Honorary Corporal to the esteemed ranking of Honorary Master Corporal,” the zoo said on Facebook.
