Vicuña Fawn Tolerates Mom
March 08, 2010
Relatives of llamas and alpacas, the vicuña is the national animal of its native Peru. Vicuña fur is extremely soft and warm and in ancient Incan culture only royalty were allowed to wear it.
Flickr photographer George Griffiths captured these beautiful shots of a proud mother Vicuña inspecting her new fawn at the UK's Chester Zoo on Feb. 25th.
