What's the difference between an alpaca and the llama?
First of all, they differ in size. A llama is up to 5 feet tall and 300 pounds, alpacas only reach 3 feet and 100 pounds. Llamas also have longer ears and faces than the alpaca.
At first glance, alpacas may resemble their larger camelid cousin the llama, but they are quite different. Their ears: Alpaca ears have short spear-shaped ears while llamas have much longer, banana-shaped ears. ... Their hair: The alpaca produces a much finer fiber than the llama.
