I did wonder about the llama at the ruins. Our alpacas make equally excellent lawn mowers and brush clearers.

Thank you to all of you! When Hiram Bingham discovered Machu Picchu in 1911 it was covered by dense vegetation; nowadays the llamas are in charge of keeping these impressive ruins clear of undergrowth.

Wow!

That llama is looking a bit pissy about you being so close behind it.
