Alpacas and Llamas are also closely related to the vicuña, which is believed to be the Alpaca's wild ancestor, and to the Guanaco. There are two breeds of Alpaca: the Suri Alpaca and the Huacaya Alpaca.

I like this a lot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: One of the younger ones in the pack.
On dirait une peluche.
Brian Walbey: I can assure you it wasn't Martine.

You have even caught the water droplets, Brian
Brian Walbey: That was a bit of luck to be honest.
What an endearing image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: pretty little thing isn't it.

There are many alpaca types
Brian Walbey: I wonder how much each type differs from one to the other.

They are such wonderful animals, Brian.
Brian Walbey: They are, apparently, more even tempered than Llamas.

Nice haircut.
Brian Walbey: We should call it 'Moptop'
I feel I shall be quite knowledgable about these charming animals by the end of this series Brian
Brian Walbey: If you have an Alpaca farm near you I'm sure Joseph and Ted would enjoy a visit, they are very docile animals.

It looks as if its socks are sagging.
I can't help but think about Mary's little lamb smile
Brian Walbey: I guess below the neck they do look a bit like lambs. It was a shame they had recently been shorn, we will have to go back another time, it isn't very far from us.
Having a drink is a great time to get some shots.
Brian Walbey: I was lucky to catch the dripping water.
they are all strange unusual creatures to my eyes, Brian. and i never heard of the vicuna before.
Brian Walbey: They originate from the Andes Ayush, they are a long way from home.
What a gentle looking creature!
Brian Walbey: They are, apparently, more even tempered than Llamas.
Just clipped by the look of it!
Brian Walbey: Not long before we went I suspect.

I wonder why they hare just left with wool on the head? Just for their appearance, I wonder?
Brian Walbey: Perhaps it is to stop the Sun burning the tops of their heads.
I can see why raising Alpacas has become so popular, Brian. A sweet image.
Brian Walbey: I believe there are several Alpaca farms throughout the country.
