The Utica Zoo responds:

Thank you for your kind words! This year, we had the Sulcata tortoise, a baby alligator (he is often mistaken for a caiman!), a rabbit, a lizard, a snake, a husky dog, and a pygmy goat. We think these animals are very charismatic, but we understand they may not be as impressive as the llamas were. The trouble with bringing large animals to the boilermaker is that they need to be both harness trained and very comfortable around people. Hopefully, we will get to that point with the alpacas in the next few years. Until then, we will do our best to bring out the most interesting animals we can. Thanks again, and we hope to see you running by again next year!

You know, I thought it might be an alligator, but I didn't want to look stupid, and I guessed wrong. And what's a Husky doing representing a zoo?

I've always loved that Joanie's Cornell Extension Farm brings its Llamas to various exhibitions, etc. in a truck called "The Lamasine". Maybe you could tell that to the Utica Zoo.
