The mother, who has a brown coat, makes its way towards the young girl, bowing its head slightly, causing the child to back away.

From the other side of the farm, a baby alpaca, known as a cria, sprints towards its parent excitedly.

The young animal, who has a light coat, stands on its hind legs and wraps its front around its mother, giving her a hug.
