The cria, baby llama, is only a few days old. When she was new born, a friend and his wife and I, moved her along with her mother to a safer pen with a good shelter. Try as I might, I could not get mama llama to stay in the shelter, so I put a gate up. The mother could jump the side easily and did, but until today, I had no idea how she got the baby out. At first, I thought that perhaps she somehow lifted the baby out with her strong neck, but that wasn't it. Really, there should have been no way for the baby to get out of there, yet she was out in short order both times I locked her in. It was a mystery.
