This is very imformal and helps a bunch

The Grazing Daisy

Despite the fact that these two animals look distinctly different many people get them confused. They both have long necks, wooly bodies, and the ability to spit when threatened. They also are both a member of the camelid family.

What is different?

First of all I want you to look at these two pictures:

Can you see the differences? Llamas have longer ears, longer noses, and taller necks. Alpacas are much smaller than llamas and have denser fur. Llamas can be aggressive animals, and alpacas tend to be shy.

Can you tell if the following pictures are alpacas or llamas? Find out by highlighting the blank space under each picture.
