Story of the name Llama. Spaniards asked the Incas "Como se Llama" (What's the name) regarding the name of the animal. Since the Incas did not understand Spanish, they repeated Llama? so the Spaniards took Llama as the name of the animal.
Cute and curious, Alpaca. I'm wondering if this is the Ringling retirement ranch for their Circus Elephants(note background). It has to be this country. The Elephants are Asian, and Alpacas(Llamas) are South American.
THIS is where alpaca yarn comes from! Looks like he/she just had a haircut. I absolutely love to knit with alpaca! I've was told by Alpaca owners that the head isn't sheared, so they look funny after being sheared.
