Bideford Zoo’s first baby is big draw

Baby llama arrives

First inmate to be born at Bideford Zoo is this llama, son of Larry and Yma. The baby arrived on Sunday and has been named Julian – after July. He is proving a big draw with visitors. His father is well-known – perhaps notorious would be a better word. That is because, with unerring aim, he can spit into the eye of some unsuspecting bystander at a range of six feet.
