On the way to Gallup last week we stopped at the Albuquerque Alpacas ranch, which incidentally has an incredible gift shop with locally spun yarn and finished products. This was the first time I had been around alpacas and they were fascinating. Here’s one of the babies…
Back on the road we were questioning what an alpaca was in relationship to other animals. We learned that they are Camelids. That was our new word for the day. Other camelids are – obviously – camels as well as vicuna, llamas, guanacos, and alpacas.
One of my favorite bloggers posted this photo of a camel. Definitely a resemblance there!
Remember Camelid – use it in a sentence today!
