Do you know the difference between a llama and an alpaca?
I put that question to Google, the mighty conundrum-cracker.
In seconds it delivered answers which confused me even more.
But I learned much about the animals that I didn’t know before.
They’re both camelids from South America, mostly from Peru.
One simple fact separates them which I gladly share with you.
It’s true they’re mucho cute and look very similar to untrained eyes.
When it comes to telling the cousins apart, alpacas are a smaller size.
It should be easy to solve who is who but for one slight snag, amigo,
Unless they’re standing side by side, who is smallest? How’d you know?
