Saturday's Critters



These are vicuna, close relatives of llamas and alpacas. We saw them at Belfast Zoo on our latest visit there.

No doubt they are warm in their woolly coats.


Curious but cautious and very cute!

Linking with Eileen for Saturday's Critters HERE

Thanks to Eileen for hosting.
