PHILADELPHIA, PA. -- Travelers were faced with quite an unexpected scene amidst the November snow on Thursday.
Video shared to Twitter by Megan Vogel shows a camel standing in the snow along Route 309 in the Philadelphia area.
"No big deal, just a camel on 309 in a snowstorm," Vogel tweeted.

The warm-weather mammal named Einstein was actually headed to an event in Center City when his transport got stuck.
He was supposed to be a part of an event put on by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center. But he was a no-show. His handler decided it was best to bring him back to his petting zoo.
