COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Here's something you don't hear about everyday, a camel walking around downtown Columbia.

We ran into "Abraham the Camel" while covering another story.

Abraham is well-known in the Midlands for his performances in the "Jesus is His Name" Christmas show and for being able to chug a bottle of Mountain Dew in seconds.

Turns out, Abraham was downtown on Monday to be in a commercial for "Cleopatra," the upcoming Columbia City Ballet's show at the Koger Center on March 24.

His handler, Clifford Fisher, said Abraham is 20 years old.
