Camel yak will be renamed to Arctic camel.

I was recently going through the "Field Guide to the Earth's Fauna" in Avatar: Legacy, and I was going through each animal listed so see how the Wiki matched up with it. I got to what is called the Arctic camel, but no page existed for it, so i searched it, and the first page listed was Camel yak, which is canon as it referred to as such as a DVD commentary. The camel yak in the image and on the poster are the same, so they're not different animals. I was wondering how this would be dealt with; If the page is to be renamed, I say that a book like Legacy, an actual source book of information, is more "official" than DVD commentary, so "Camel yak" should be renamed to "Arctic camel", and the term "camel yak" be used as "The arctic camel, also called the camel yak, is a thick-furred, dual-humped animal..."
I support this proposal, considering there is an official source for both names, but the appearance of the animal holds little resemblance to the supposed "yak" part of it. LadyLostrisvstf(talk • HotN) 10:07, August 29, 2016 (UTC)
The same could be said about "bison manatees" and "lemur-bats", but those eventually came to be what bison and lemurs look like in the Avatarverse. In this case, if not placed as an alternative name, then it should be mentioned that it is referred to as a "camel yak" in DVD commentary in the Trivia section. I'm fine with either.
