Is it normal that my gopro came without a battery?

So I got this gopro for Christmas and soon after threw out the box - not so smart on my part. Now I am left with a camera and I am not even sure what model it is (can't seem to find serial number). Other than that, the first time I opened it, there was no battery to be found in the go pro. Now, I am pretty sure the gopro is supposed to come with a battery - or am I wrong?

 

I am about to order a new battery online but just wanted to see if anybody knew if the battery is supposed to be somewhere else - I am thinking somewhere in the packaging that I threw away (which I highly doubt but I'll ask anyway)?

Well a picture speaks  a thousand words. I say it is a white or silver has a built in battery but since you have no clue post a picture please

It was in the box that you threw out. The battery does not come in the camera for safety reasons.
