Shaven dreadlocks Doesn't that look cozy? Standing there and eating, more moss than actual grass. It must originate from some exotic island, my mind spins. I don't know, do you know what species (except llama/sheep/alien) this is? Pretty though.

  1. Hehe, thats a funny looking animal. Not sure what it is, looks more like a llama than a sheep to me. Posted 8 years ago
    1. Grin, yes, it could be a Llama too. Hmm, let's google a bit:) It does look like a very funny sheep, so maybe it isn't a sheep at all:)) Thx for the hint! Posted 8 years ago, modified 8 years ago
    2. Hi Ferdy, I think you're right. I'll mark it zero dude (hihi, movie quote), better yet I'll tag it a Llama and will verify it when I see it again. Thx for brainstorming! Posted 8 years ago
      1. It looks like its "Ludwig":

  2. Hi Ludo, are you still open to suggestions? I mean, I'm quite sure it's an alien. But that apart, I guess, llama is right, but more specific, this should be an alpaka (Vicugna pacos). What do you think? Posted 8 years ago
    1. Hi Gglaeser, first congratulations on your spider class. Up to the next level! Thank you for your inspiring and humorous comment of the alien:) And thanks for taking the ID to the next level too! I shall update the binomial type. Good luck! Posted 8 years ago, modified 8 years ago

An alpaca is a domesticated species of South American camelid. It resembles a small llama in appearance.

There are two breeds of alpaca; the Suri alpaca and the Huacaya alpaca.

Alpacas are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of southern Peru, northern Bolivia, Ecuador, and northern Chile at an altitude of 3,500 m to 5,000 m above sea level, throughout the year. Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas, and unlike llamas, they were not bred.. more
