Chicago's Cutest Newborn
The Lincoln Park Zoo has an adorable new resident—a Bactrian camel calf named Alexander Camelton. Born on May 9 to mom Nasan and dad Scooter, he’s intermittently on exhibit in the Antelope Zebra Area at the south end of the zoo (near Café Brauer and Nature Boardwalk). Your best chance to catch him is early morning—lucky tots might see him run, nurse, or show interest in the other animals. The zoo is open daily from 10am to 5pm and admission is free.
The Lincoln Park Zoo is located at 2001 N. Clark St., Lincoln Park.; 312.742.2000.
