Most travellers to Peru and other mountainous parts of South America will inevitably meet one of these adorable indigenous camelids, but what’s the difference?
I think I can, I think I can!
I don’t have any photos of guanacos, because they’re mostly wild, like vicuñas. Llamas and alpacas are generally more domesticated, so they’re the ones most travellers encounter.
FYI, in Peru, alpaca is a local dish, so if you want to eat some, don’t get too attached to their adorableness!
Could you tell theme apart?! Have you met up with any of these cute, furry beasties on your travels?
