Bit parts

March 15th, 2013 · 1 Comment

This month C&D are learning to get bit parts on the local network news stations:

The reporter caught us watching a llama costume show. Like most animals, llamas and alpacas usually aren’t tolerant of having anything on their heads or around their legs; the contest demonstrated the training and calm disposition of the llamas.

Llamas easily and lightly travel over varied, rocky terrain, carrying loads up to a quarter of their weight; they help guard flocks of sheep and goats from predation; and their coats are made of a warm, spinnable, feltable hair. In the Andes, llamas are also used as a food and hide source.

I’ve always liked the idea of llamas, with their friendly camelid shape, soft fur, and expressive eyes, since I first saw one . . . on Sesame Street.
