This is a real curiosity May and I think that he(she) does not live in a zoo! Very beautiful photo May ! Cheers, Tamás
Thank you Hamza and Tamás!
Yes, it is a curiosity, Tamás, but we see them quite often now on farms, they keep them like sheep or cattle.
Best wishes, May
I'm enjoying your Swiss llama, May! Do farmers there sometimes use them to protect sheep? A few do in North America.
Yesterday we visited an archaeological site (some pre-Inca truncated pyramids) where they keep more than 100 llamas!
Best regards, Marilyn
Thank you so much, Marilyn, to leave the llamas and the place you are visiting to see the lama in my collection ;) It must have been quite a sight to view this herd of 100 llamas in their original surroundings, Marilyn!
A few farmers keep them here for trekking tours and for therapeutical reasons, they carry the bags of the tourists. ;)
To protect the sheep from wolves, which sometimes cross the borders from Italy, they are keeping donkeys to protect the sheep, as they do in Italy as well.
I wish you all the best, May
Beautifully captured, doesn´t seem he miss his original land
Thank you, Edmundo! Probably he never was in his original land :) They are bred here by a few farmers.
The really nice thing about your gallery is that you never know what is coming next. (unless you select each thumbnail in turn). So many wonderful pets May. Your life must be fun-filled with all these amazing creatures in your midst.
Lovely natural photos May.
Thank you, Jim! I have so many photos, which I would like to upload for my friends… I am afraid I never catch up. I have still many more photos from Scotland, Ireland and the Canary islands, even from England. And probably I am going to England and Scotland again in June, so there will be even more. ;)
I see those animals only, when I get near those farms. I don't keep animals for myself, it's too often that I am away.
My best greetings, May
Es una llama privilegiada..!!! Saludos May Alejandro:D
Gracias, Alejandro! No estoy seguro que es privilegiada. Posibilmente tiene la nostalgia por los Andes! ;)
Swissmay, this photo make me to smile a lot. It is incredible to have lamas in Switzerland but seems it is not impossible.. :-))))))))
:)) Thank you for your visit at the "Swiss" lamas, Mimipet! Yes, it seems to be incredible to see Lamas in Switzerland. The first time I saw some, I didn't believe my eyes, but they seem to get accustomed here easily. Greetings to you, May
I see.. thanks for information May!
All this discussion about llamas in Switzerland shows that panoramio has an educational side to it as well : ) Actually it was in Switzerland that I bought my Peruvian pipe - kena. The mountains - that's another link between Switzerland and Equador and Peru. Maybe we should organize a trip to look for twin-Macchu Picchu in the Swiss Alps : ) Cheers from Warsaw, as yet withoul llamas
Thank you, Ivonna! :) Machu Picchu in Switzerland would be a very great surprise, since I think, that every m2 has been viewed here, but who knows, what is hidden under ground and below the glaciers.
I have really seen a Llama farm in Scotland during my stay during the last weeks. ;)
