Animals that I used to think were camels with coats on them. Hahaha.

Yes, I realize they are *not* the same animal...now, anyway.

Well, you were right. They are camels.

If a dromedary is a camel, then a llama or an alpaca is also a camel.

Re: Alpacas?

Yes, but isn't it sort of like dog breeds, where a german shepard is not a poodle, even if they are both dogs? Both are camelids, but they are not each other.

Re: Alpacas?

Well, dog breeds are vary so widely because of selective breeding. Camelids, though many species are domesticated, are still very similar to their wild counterparts. I've read that the domesticated ones are just as likely to spit as the wild ones. It's not a threatening thing. It's more like: "You won't leave me alone. Here. Have some partially-digested greens and stomach acid."

Whew yeah! Those are expensive! But so beautiful... much like the alpacas from whence they came...

This one's pretty awesome:

An alpaca Matrix coat!

At first I thought you meant coats *for* alpacas... and started to get giddy. Those are still cool, though. ;)

I could probably get a scarf or one of those little hats but that's about it. I love those "blanket" jackets myself.
