HOUSTON - The Houston Zoo wants you to visit their llamas this weekend. The zoo posted a photo on its Facebook page Friday showing two llamas.

One of the llamas has blue and black stripes The other llama has white and gold stripes.

The picture plays off of two strange national stories that went viral Thursday.

Runaway llamas in Sun City, Arizona captured America's heart. People were glued to TV sets and computers as the unusual fugitives were rounded up near Phoenix.

Also Thursday, friends and coworkers worldwide debated the true hues of a royal blue dress with black lace that, to many an eye, transformed in one photograph into gold and white.

According to the Houston Zoo, the llamas pictured in their Facebook post were not actually painted.
