I'm sure Choisty'd bring it half way for you!
Can you ride them? Perfect lift home for an out 'n' back...
Choisty - the easiest way to tell the difference between llamas and alpacas is the size. A full grown llama can be approx 6ft (measured to the top of it's head), alpacas are smaller (about 4.5-5ft). Llamas also have slightly longer heads, but if you don't have a handy alpaca with you for comparison that might be less useful.
Glad they are being friendly, they are lovely animals but definitely ones to keep on the right side of, when they spit at you it's not just high-velocity saliva but fermenting green stomach contents too. (They are really skilled at it and an amazing aim too - put all the runners who misfire and hit other runners trainers in busy races to shame!). Very wise not to mess with the buffalo, especially if they have wee ones around..
Good knowledge HP!!
Llamas/alpacas/guanacos - my favourite camelid! -/vicunas do have fighting teeth or 'fangs', - modified canine and incisor teeth which erupt in males around 2-3yrs and slightly later in females. Some vets do advocate removal of these, especially from males, as they can injure other males with them.
My thoughts exactly ECG!
Check you two out with your factoids.
Sadly my factoids are limited to a single area - weird animal facts - which while great for two minutes of the pub quiz, doesn't help with much else! Ah well, we all have our uses..
I was up visiting my parents and I took the dog out just before going to bed at around 11:30, and a man came past, running down the white line in the middle of the road, backwards.
And last week running round Virginia Water we were confronted by about 300 Santas.
I've seen a weasel, a slow worm, a badger, deer, hares, buzzards, and a cuckoo (which you normally hear, but don't often see).
There was a bloke on a three-wheeled chariot-type thing being pulled by dogs, another time I saw a chap (adult) on a tricycle with racing handlebars, and most random of all, a pair of aircraft seats which where by the gate to a farm field.
These were gone by the time I came back past half an hour later (some people will nick anything!)
So STU would that be ownerless knickers AND knickerless owners then?

As long as they didn't belong to the wildlife - I'm happy!

Dry land mushing; like Sled dog mushing, but with wheels and usually no snow. I do that with a couple of my dogs. (And it's the reason I started running with them, in an attempt to give them and me more exercise when we can't get out mushing.) The "chariot" is known as a rig.
I think possibly when I'm out running I am the strangest sight out there, with a belt and bungee line on attaching me to a hyper husky at the other end of the line....
hey cool - I've been looking into the whole cani-x caper - have seen a few photos of other people with terriers. I reckon I'll be getting some odd looks with my wee JRT in front of me too. Do you find the waist belt makes a big difference - I can't decide whether to just run with her on a bungee lead at the side of me.
(Don't worry - we'll both be wearing pants tho hers will be metaphorical fur ones)
