ORLANDO, Fla. – This camel’s got moves.

In a scene that could only play out in Florida, a camel was spotted dancing in State Road 408 traffic Sunday morning and News 6 anchor Matt Austin just happened to be there to capture it on video.

Austin said his wife Tricia was driving him and his daughters Addison, Lulu and Sawyer to church around 11 a.m. when commotion broke out in the car.

“It was just sheer pandemonium in here for a moment as we were driving by a petting zoo on the highway. It was very cute,” Austin said.

At first, he didn’t believe his daughters when they started yelling about a dancing camel — that is, until he looked up.

“We seriously see not only the camel, but that fact that it’s, like, doing the Carlton, it’s like dancing in the back of the school bus with its head stuck out. He seemed really happy back there, it’s like the perfect little spot for him to hang his head out the window and do his little dance moves,” Austin said.
