haha these are becoming really fashionable to keep as pets over here, you can see why they look very fluffy and cute. Hope they don't spit though?

@Ainsley: We were told they only spit when they feel threatened.

Marie-France from Angers, France

hihi... j'adore ! C'est excellent...le lama est un animal très n'est pas fâché car il n'a pas les oreilles couchées...Ceci dit, il fait une drôle de bouille, mais je crois que c'est du à la fourrure, et l'alpaga n'a pas du tout la même tête que le lama en définif...J'en ai pris un ce week-end et le mien aussi faisait une drôle de tête.... Mes photos récentes ne sont pas aussi belles que celle-ci , je ne l'ai pas d'aussi près... J'en ai des vieilles par contre, dont une qui est programmé prochainement... Bravo ! *****

16 Jan 2014 3:49pm

@Marie-France: Thank you. This is definitely an alpaca. It was taken at an alpaca farm and there were no llamas there. Much smaller than a llama.

Lena from San Francisco, United States

lovely. great close up...:-)

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

That is the cutest llama face I've seen ... a wonderful capture, Ruthie.
I like the looks of its teeth (sometimes so brown), and the backlight on its ear!

16 Jan 2014 4:02pm

@Judy aka L@dybug: This is an alpaca not a llama. There were no llamas at this alpaca farm. LLamas are much bigger.

Jeremy from Ridgedale, United States

Well that's an ornery face, seemingly questioning your existence :).

Marie-France from Angers, France

oui je suis sûre aussi que c'est un alpaga... j'ai vu les deux ce week-end... je les compare, car ils sont proches, mais il n'y a aucun doute dans mon esprit...c'est un n'en ai jamais douté... Merci

16 Jan 2014 6:23pm

@Marie-France: I think when I translated (Using google) I misunderstood what you said earlier. thanks for returning to clear it up
