Difference between alpaca and llama

But in reality what is the difference between an alpaca and a llama? Indeed, many people confuse the alpaca with the llama. But in fact, the alpaca and the llama are cousins! Despite their similarity, they have some differences. First of all, llamas and alpacas are domestic animals. Secondly, the llama is twice as big as the alpaca, which is smaller. We also notice a difference between them, at the level of the ears, those of the llama are curved to have an idea they are in the shape of a "banana", contrary to those of the alpaca who has straight and pointed ears. On the other hand, the alpaca is used to produce fibre for clothing, whereas the llama is rather used to carry loads such as alpaca fibre, for example. They are very intelligent animals who can easily understand orders. Alpacas are the bushier of the two. You can recognise it immediately because it looks like a cuddly toy. It is known for its wool, because it produces a lot of wool of consistent quality. Shearing takes place from November to April. If you would like to find out how the alpacas are sheared, we advise you to visit them during these periods. You will be able to see the breeders taking care of them and you can even try to do it yourself, it is a very satisfying and fun activity. The alpaca, unlike the llama, does not spit. And no he doesn't spit on human beings, he gives little kisses. Isn't that cute? On the other hand, the alpaca can be made to spit on his fellow creatures to communicate. For example, the female spits on the male to indicate that she does not wish to be mated. These animals are very sociable and enjoy contact with humans, so don't wait any longer to discover them during a visit, because when you do, you won't be able to do without them.
