CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A baby dromedary camel was born at the Metro Richmond Zoo on Feb. 7

Parent camels Walter and Mindy welcomed the baby girl.

The new addition is currently bonding with her mother and the herd.

The zoo posted to its Facebook page asking for name suggestions and held a vote among four suggestions for what the camel would be named.

Options included Alexandra Camelton, Windy, Wednesday and Ivanka Hump. After a tight race, Alexandra Camelton was chosen.

Welcome to the MRZ family, Alexandra Camelton! Thanks for all of your votes.
