The answer is explicitly "no."  We do not have permission, nor will
permission ever be given.  Welcome to the wonderful world of trademark law.
I had this discussion with O'Reilly's IP lawyer a few years ago.

Which isn't to say that a camel can't be used at all.  You just can't use
the O'Reilly Perl Camel. (You know the one I mean.)  You can make your own
camel and use it.  Here is the one we came up with for Toronto's YAPC a few
years ago:

Perhaps you could make a "Carmadillo"?

But, on another point -- don't forget, The Camel is an O'Reilly Perl thing.
The Perl Foundation uses an Onion logo.  Maybe Onion adaptations is what
should be aimed for.
