Some people don't realize how vastly different Llamas & Alpacas are. Thus, the endless battle over the difference between Llamas & Alpacas has begun.... and there can be only ONE victor.

Seriously, the difference between them is HUGE.

DIFFERENCE #1: Alpacas are WAAAAAY cuter.

Look at that FACE! It's like a world of happiness in its eyes.

Llamas have a longer face and less hair, whereas Alpacas have adorable smooshed faces that hold an infinite amount of cuteness.

This is the science of cuteness. Don't question it.
