And to put it simply: Alpacas are pleasant looking and Llamas look like they’re constantly judging you.
One of my neighbours is an alpaca and I seriously love him so much, I always say hi on my runs and he just smiles back. I don’t personally know any llamas though.
I’m crying can I please have an Alpaca.
what I get from this is that I seriously seriously prefer alpacas
Llamas look like they’re constantly judging you.
Adorable Animal Being Adorable of the Day: Chris and Sandra sent TDW a charming email — “Only In Africa!” — complete with pic, about their friends’ encounter with a real-life Pumbaa:
They had been away at a game park and on the first evening, while sitting in front of the fire in the bar, in walked a fully grown warthog. He walked over to the bar and without a word the bar man handed him a pillow.
He took the pillow in his mouth, dropped it next to the fire and promptly lay down with his head on the pillow and went to sleep where, apparently he spends the cold nights.
In the morning he’s off into the bush again! My friend says that if the barman isn’t there, he’ll just grab a pillow off one of the couches!
Hard to say whether it’s real, but here’s hoping.
[thanks, chris & sandra!]
omg please be real. pleaasseee
Pangolins are very weird mammals, whose bodies are almost completely covered on large scales. When threatened, they coil into a ball so tight that’s almost impossible to unroll. And that’s not all; a Sumatran pangolin was seen curling into a ball and then actually rolling down a slope at high speed to escape unwanted attention!
I refuse to believe the Pangolin is not some sort of Pokemon.
I want one.
