The Difference Between Llamas and Alpacas

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?
