I´m Karel and I´m a caterpillar. I was found under the Christmas tree in 2015 and it was a really big surprise. So now I´m mascot and member of ESN Buddy System HK. I´m a part of this big family and I'm proud of it.
And why they chose me and why they gave me a name Karel? Well, it's easy. Because Hradec doesn't have any typical animal, what can characterize it, they were thinking about an animal, which will have the same first letters as Hradec Králové. So they said Housenka (caterpillar) and they gave me a name Karel - Housenka Karel.
