Well helloooooo

So, I'm not so good with animal identification other than your standard beasts. Does anyone know what this is? My best guess is a llama or an alpaca.

 

UPDATE: The consensus seems to be llama ... and that I'm lucky that I wasn't spit upon.

    Hi, Tina! You look beautiful. How's Andre? Has he found any good seahorse models for you lately? How is your life going? Is everything developing nicely? Are you comfortable with yourself the way you are?

    I don't even know what the difference is, but still I would guess an alpaca. It's awfully shaggy. Don't people use alpaca fur? I don't think people use llama fur. Or do they? What do they keep llamas for? They don't eat the poor llamas, do they? Do they milk the llamas? Do they make llama cheese? Do they make llama yogurt and llama ice cream and llama chocolate for people who are allergic to cow yogurt and ice cream and chocolate?

    Also, it seems like llamas look different from that. It's colored like a cow. Isn't that an alpaca thing? And to me it seems to be oddly shaped. I don't think llamas are shaped like that. It seems like this llama had some sort of deer for an ancestor a few generations back. I think that's more what alpacas look like, but I don't know.

    I haven't heard of alpacas spitting on people. That could just mean I'm culturally illiterate. Or, if this creature didn't even attempt to spit on you, that might be further evidence of it's alpacahood.
