Happy 'Hump Day' Alexander Camelton, welcome to the world


In honor of "Hump Day," meet Alexander Camelton.

No, you didn't misread that. And we are not talking about one of the Founding Fathers.

Officials at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago named their newest addition Alexander Camelton as a nod to the Founding Father and the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton," according to the zoo's Facebook Page.

Alexander Camelton was born May 9 and made his public debut as the first Bactrian camel born at the zoo since 1998, according to Red Eye Chicago.

He may be small (and super cute) now, but according to the zoo's Facebook page, he will likely weigh more than 2,000 pounds and measure 7ft. tall at the top of his hump once he is fully matured.

For now, this little guy is the talk of Chitown and has even been endorsed on social media.
