24 of the Cutest Baby Llamas Ever!

What could be cuter than a bunch of baby llamas and alpacas? I went and found some for you. I also found a couple of interesting baby llama facts. Did you know that a baby llama is called a cria? I didn’t!

I also found that llamas often hum, both when content and when under stress. Mother llamas also hum to their babies. Llamas live between 17 and 23 years, so these babies will grow up and be around for awhile.   When fully grown, a llama will average around 350 pounds in weight.

Here are 24 totally cute baby llamas and alpacas.
