Unable to add .bot tld to cloudflare

I have been trying to add encirca.com registered domain to Cloudflare. But it keeps on rejecting the request to add the *.bot domain. Following is the error I get in the dashboard:

*.bot is not a registered domain (Code: 1049)

Are you sure it’s registered? looks like someone got their .bot on CF (so it’s likely not a registry issue).
