Blue Eyes

A llama/alpaca may exhibit one blue eye or even both eyes may be blue. Some eyes are so striking, they appear almost white due to the lack of pigment and sometimes are referred to as a glass eye. Although considered a blemish rather than a fault by the show association, a blue eye is not considered a desireable trait by llama/alpaca breeders and the blemish may be inherited. Studies have been done regarding the association of a blue eye on a white haired animal causing deafness.
