How can you not love this face?! Can I get an ‘awwwwwww’?
I mean seriously, I wish I could have taken this little guy home with me. He’d have a really great life in my backyard.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was really excited to see this group of alpacas when we were visiting Isla Suasi in Peru. Part of me stills feels guilty for having alpaca for dinner while visiting Machu Picchu (it tasted like pork in case you were wondering) – but that was well before I saw these cuties up close.
Part of the camelid species (as are camels and llamas), there are two different types of alpaca, the Huacaya and the Suri. They’re all damn cute and I sure won’t be eating alpaca meat again. EVER.
