What is the difference between a llama and an alpaca?
1. The size
While llamas reach a shoulder height of up to 130 cm, alpacas usually have a shoulder height of up to 90 cm. In general, llamas are also more robustly built and can weigh up to 140 kg.
2. The shape of the face
Alpacas have a more rounded and full face due to the wool, with a small nose and pointed ears. Llamas, on the other hand, have a more triangular head with a long nose and short fur around it. Llamas also have longer ears.
3. The wool
There is also a big difference in the wool. Alpacas are mainly bred for their exclusive and beautiful wool. The coat is beautifully even, dense and fine in texture. Llamas are pack animals, which is why their fur is shaggier and coarser than that of alpacas.
