Taken in 2012 at Seaview Wildlife Centre, Isle of Wight; this centre has now closed and some of the animals moved elsewhere on the Island:

What's the white animal? Albino wallaby?
Yes, it is and a cute one at that (Taken by my wife, Margaret):

Honestly, name one other forum where a thread created by merging two separate threads about llamas and alpacas could be hijacked by an albino wallaby.

Go ahead, I dare you!

So before we headed out today Sue had to go for a Chiropractor appointment. Just as we pulled up a girl was getting something out of the car but I was not taking much notice. After a couple of minutes Sue comes out and tells me come in and bring my camera. The young girl had a baby llama with her which was a major cuteness overload. This little guy is called Herschel and is one week old. He was born four weeks premature and is tiny. His mother rejected him so he is being reared my humans now. The girls mother was in for a treatment so they have to bring Herschel with them and we got to meet him as it was feeding time for him. Incredibly cute little guy that has not had the best start in life, but knows he'll get all the love he needs.

Very pleased to discover this thread!

We went to a local alpaca farm at the weekend. They are lovely creatures. We got to feed them, which was slightly more complicated than I had imagined (eg. don't feed that one too much, it's overweight. And another one is timid and the others push in so we had to distract them in order to feed it!).

Apologies I have photobombed them in one shot :biggrin:

Lots of pictures, as they are so photogenic. I tended to do more "portrait" style close-ups.

I felt I had to reply to this thread with some images from 15 years ago. I cycled from Quito to Tierra del Fuego with a Canon S70 and two 1GB cards which I copied to CDs for storage. I saw all the South American camelids - Llama (loads - the picture is in front of the Cordillera Blanca, Peru), Vicuna (a few, Pampas Galeras, Peru), Alpaca (loads - pic from someplace in Bolivia) and eventually, 3 days from the end on Tierra del Fuego, a solitary Guanaco. The guanaco shot was taken from the saddle - I was behind it on the road with fences on either side and I’d just managed to pull the camera from its pouch when it double-backed and I had got one photo. I remember thinking at the time that that’s the sort of lucky shot with a point and shoot that you only get after 5000 miles in the wilderness!

The final image with the sign is me on Ruta 40 which I rode along for 1000 miles in Argentina. I’d love to do go back with a better camera and better photo skills.
