How did he get them up there? Aren't there some in the car too?

What's up with the 'No Visas Required' advertisement on the side of the car?

That seems real sketchie. Never know if you might get a fake llama knockoff instead of the real thing. :D

What's really strange is the photo is almost certainly from another country, but the signage is in English.

Most ranchers have a ramp for unloading and loading livestock from a truck. I expect that guy just parked his wagon next to the ramp and loaded the llamas.

We have many llama ranchers in Colorado. They're beautiful animals, but I can't figure out what practical purpose they serve in North America. As I understand it, they can't carry as much weight as a mule. They are amazingly sure-footed in mountain terrain, but not many folks require pack animals to carry goods through unexplored tundra these days.

I know the coats from alpacas is valuable; like high-grade wool. Not sure about a llama.

I saw that pic last week on another forum. And, I will follow in the footsteps of those who posted there, and post this link for your amusement:
