Chicago zoo's baby camel 'Alexander Camelton' a social media star
A month-old Bactrian camel named Alexander Camelton at Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo has become a social media star. The gangly brown camel has Twitter abuzz over his name, a play on Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of the United States and the inspiration for the smash Broadway musical "Hamilton.""We've been very surprised with the reaction we've gotten on social media," Lincoln Park Zoological Manager Dan Boehm said on Tuesday.Boehm described Alexander Camelton, the first Bactrian camel born at the zoo since 1998, as very precocious and said he was adjusting very well.
Alexander Skarsgard admitted he burst into tears at the end of filming The Legend of Tarzan when he was presented with a beer and a banoffee pie.
The 39-year-old Swede blamed his emotional outburst on his strict diet that, along with brutal twice-daily training sessions, saw him gain 25lbs in muscle and transform into the hulking king of the jungle.
Speaking at the film’s European premiere in Leicester Square, he confessed: “My costumer on the movie, Jess, she baked this banoffee pie and I cried like a baby because I hadn’t had sugar in nine months or a sip of beer.

“So on wrap they walked up with this massive pie and a pint of ice cold beer and oh my god!They go surprisingly well together, I would highly recommend it.”
Despite his ripped physique, Alex did bemoan the after-effects of the exercise which had left him struggling with his flexibility and said he couldn’t even tough his toes.
But it was lucky he had done all that training when Alexander was left to give co-star Samuel L Jackson a vine-swinging piggy-back on set.
He said: “There’s a scene where Sam’s on my back and I swing on a vine and he’s holding on to me and it was quite surreal experience to stand on set, having Sam Jackson on your back like a little angry backpack.”

He said: ”He’s a joy to work with, an incredible actor, so down to earth and easy-going. He loves to improvise and he’s a very curious man and I love that.”
Finding chemistry with his beautiful and feisty on-screen wife Margot took about “four seconds”, he said.
“She’s so adorable,” he smiled.
