Llamas are undeniably funny, with their thick woolly coats, sparky attitudes and habit of spitting when cross. Llamas are part of a larger family of animals called Camelidae, which also includes alpacas as well as their wild cousins, vicuña and guanaco.
In their native Peru, llamas' fiery personalities and hatred of dogs has led to them being used to guard flocks of sheep and alpacas.
What's the difference between an alpaca and a llama? No, this isn't the first pun of the list, we're really asking. Although they're easy to confuse, llamas are taller, with longer faces and bigger ears, while alpacas are shorter with thick, shaggy wool. The babies of both are called crias. Llamas are usually used to carry heavy loads through the Peruvian mountains, while alpacas provide soft, fluffy wool for clothing.
Well, after all those facts we feel thoroughly i-llamanated, so let's move on to the jokes.
