There are Llamas on Prince Edward Island. On Route 2, just West of Charlottetown, you will see a Llama ranch on the North side of the highway. On most days, you can see the llamas grazing. There is also a u-pick strawberry patch on the property. What a quaint combination. As far as I know, Llamas do not eat strawberries.
If you remember the post about alpacas, you may wonder about the differences. They are both in the camel family and they are both native to South America.
- Llamas are bigger than alpaca. So if you see the two together you may be able to tell the difference.
- Alpacas have straight ears and the Llama is curved.
- The alpaca I have seen have woolly fur resembling sheep whereas llamas usually have a straighter coat.
I am sure there are many other differences; I am certainly no animal expert. Regardless of the differences, both produce a fur/wool that is very desirable, and naturally waterproof. Come for a drive in PEI and get some Llama pictures.
